Versatile Chelsea player and Jamaican centre-half Michael Hector has been very impressive since he made the switch to Hillsborough and Sheffield Wednesday over the summer.
The much travelled 26-year-old has had a few clubs as Chelsea continually loan him out, but with 40 games in total for us, he’s proven himself to be a key player – especially under manager Steve Bruce – and the player himself was quoted by the Star as saying that the club really has ‘felt like home’ to him, and with plenty hoping we can do a permanent deal over the summer, that naturally plays in our favour.
Having scooped the Owls Player of the Season award at The Star Football Awards on Monday evening, he said of his future.
“I have spoken about it quite a lot to the players and they have asked. To me it has felt like home, it has felt normal coming here and I have felt like a permanent player. The banter and stuff has been good and even the staff have been really good to me. I would love to stay but sometimes it is not as easy as that and there are other things off the field that need to be sorted out. I have just got to concentrate on playing well – there’s one game left so hopefully we can play well and get a win on Sunday. Then we’ll see what happens over the summer.”
It’s clear he has no future at Chelsea as they continue to stockpile players and in doing so, seemingly hold them back, and that will be a big driver for Hector given how he talks about the club when he looks to his future.
Then it comes down to price.
