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.
