On loan Chelsea defender Michael Hector has had a very good Championship 2018/19 campaign after he made the switch out to Hillsborough back during the summer transfer window.

With more loan spells under his belt that you can shake a stick at, the 6ft 4in versatile player has filled in at both midfield and the heart of defence for us this year, making 38 starting appearances for both former manager Jos Luhukay and current gaffer Steve Bruce and with a further showing from the substitutes bench, he’s also chipped in with two goals – the last of which came from the penalty spot in the disappointing final day defeat to Queens Park Rangers.

Having impressed plenty of Owls fans with his efforts, he had a clean sweep at the end of season Player Awards night and as thoughts turn towards his future, the player himself has admitted he would love to stay and sign a permanent deal.

Speaking to the Star following the curtain coming down on the year, he explained.

“I have made it clear that I would be happy to stay but things need to be sorted out now the season has finished. There’s not much I can say to Chelsea, it’s just whether the clubs can sort something out and hopefully I can continue here next season. Any team that the gaffer can put his stamp on, you know is going to be there or there abouts. Even in his small time here he has changed the philosophy of the club on a daily basis and for us it is just about building for the future and hopefully I can be here. Things have changed in my mind, definitely. I have made it clear that my next club I want to settle down and build a foundation and actually play week-in, week-out and enjoy my football and I have done that this season.”
