Young Chelsea starlet Ben Sahar has agreed to extend his stay at Hillsborough for another month – even though he has yet to start a game in the famous blue and white stripes.

The Israel international has yet to make an impact at S6 after agreeing a loan switch from Stamford Bridge, but Owls boss Brian Laws obviously sees something in the youngster that can help the Owls pave their way to safety this season.

Laws told the Sheffield Star: ‘I have spoken to Chelsea and the player, and he wants to stay.

‘He still wants to be a part of things here and when his chance comes he wants to stick the ball in the back of the net.’

Sahar had only made a handful of appearances for Wednesday from the bench, and saw his chances ended after picking up a hamstring strain which saw him return to Chelsea for treatment.

But Laws has revealed that the player is making good progress following his set-back and could well be in line to return to the squad for Saturday’s visit of Crystal Palace.
