Palmer pleased to pen new Owls deal

Liam Palmer says he is delighted to pledge his long-term future to Wednesday after signing an improved contract to stay at Hillsborough.

The 22-year-old has signed a new deal that will see him remain an Owl until at least 2018 after impressing in his breakthrough season in the first team.

And the Worksop-born player had no hesitation in putting pen-to-paper.

"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,' he told the official SWFC website.

"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 gone from the periphery of the Owls' first-team to becoming a key cog in Stuart Gray's plans with 38 first-team appearances this season.

Well deserved Lad thinking back not too long ago when he emerged on the scene it was clear that he had a lot to learn. He snatched the chances thrown his way went out to learn his trade. He returned and has developed far more this last 5 months or so under SG than any of us could imagine the good thing or frightening thing dependant on how we look at it is that he may only be at 60% of his full potential. I think this season has done him the world of good and hopefully next season surrounded with a few quality signings could be his arrival on the scene as a player who is here to stay. Good luck and well done Liam

Agreed and who knows? Perhaps Liam will become the fixture in the Scottish national side while McCabe gets to warm the bench at Cowdenbeath. Over to you, Rhys. Prove me wrong :0)

Really pleased for the lad. Considering he's played most of the season in an unfamiliar position, he must be in the frame for the most improved player this season.
