Sheffield Wednesday hero, Liam Palmer, has confirmed that he will definitely be at Hillsborough next season.

The Owls defender, who played in three different positions during Monday’s play-off final victory, was due to see his contract at the club expire at the end of the season, but he’s now confirmed to The Star that an option has been triggered that will see him remain with his boyhood club beyond the 2022/23 campaign.

Wednesday won the game 1-0 in the capital thanks to a goal from Josh Windass that booked their spot in next season’s Championship, and Palmer was once again used in three different roles throughout the game as he continued his place as Darren Moore’s swiss army knife.

And afterwards he confirmed the great news about his future, speaking with his winners medal around his back, the 31-year-old said, “I’ve played enough games this season to trigger a clause in that contract, that happened after the Forest Green game so that’s already set.

“I think we’ll sit down hopefully with the manager and Chairman and look for a few years - but I’m more than happy to represent this club for as long my legs will carry me and as long as they’ll carry me.”

Palmer played more minutes than any other Owls player this season en route to promotion, and it was a brilliant way to top off a season that has seen him break records both collectively and with the club on the way to winning his Player of the Season award.
