Delighted to sign

26 March 2014

Liam Palmer has spoken exclusively to having put pen to paper on a long term contract at Hillsborough.

The Owls’ academy product has risen through the ranks to become a first team regular this season, the result of which was the offer of the new deal he duly signed this week.

He said: “I’m delighted to sign and it is put to bed. It’s been in the pipeline for a while and Sheffield Wednesday is where I want to be.

“This is a massive club hopefully going places and I want to be part of that. It’s important to me to know where I am and to have that continuity.

“Now I just want to continue my progress and go from strength to strength.”

Palmer has proved a key and regular performer for the Owls this term, making 38 appearances so far – primarily at right back.

The 22-year-old spent his formative years in midfield, an area to which he reverts with consummate ease when required.

But in the bigger picture, Palmer is content with pulling on a starting shirt for the club he has always supported.

He added: “I am happy to play anywhere the gaffer asks me to play. I want to give my all for the team in any position.

“I take one game at a time and focus on the position I play for that particular game. It’s important to be switched on at all times and that has come with experience.

“I went out on loan to Tranmere last season and that did me the world of good in terms of my development.

“I played games and did well, which has stood me in good stead for committing to Sheffield Wednesday, where I want to play my football.”
