'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Everton Stopper Hoping For Stay

On-loan Everton stopper Iain Turner has revealed he's loving life at Hillsborough and would be delighted if the Toffees allowed his stay at S6 to be extended.

Wednesday are currently in discussions with Everton boss David Moyes about extending the stopper's deal at Hillsborough over the initial one-month stay until the end of the season.

The young Scot has greatly impressed the Owls staff and fans alike since arriving from Goodison Park in February, and insisted he wants to be playing first team football week in week out.

Turner told The Sheffield Star: 'I'm loving it here. I'm playing first-team football at a very good standard at a very good club.

'They're already talking about extending the loan; I want to be playing first-team football; I'd love to stay.'

And Owls boss Brian Laws confirmed he was in discussions with the Merseyside club about extending his loan.

He said: 'Iain's loan runs out in about 10 days' time. We're already speaking to Everton about extending that. We're confident that it will go through.'

The young Scot is currently third choice at Goodison Park behind number one Tim Howard and back-up Richard Wright, and has helped the Owls remain unbeaten since his arrival at the club - with three wins and two draws under his belt.

And he was also part of the side that picked up their first clean sheet of 2007 in last night's victory over Colchester United at Hillsborough.

His form has been impressive since he came here. I hope we can keep him.

I hope we can keep him on a full time deal in pre-season nevermind just for the end of the season! He seems to be enjoying it here and wants to be playing every week so sign him up!
