Report states Sheffield Wednesday are in ‘advanced talks’ with defender Liam Palmer
According to reports, Sheffield Wednesday are in advanced talks with long-serving defender, Liam Palmer, as he looks to sign a new contract at the club.
The Star reported recently that Palmer was thought to be among those in line for a new deal at the club as he draws closer to the last six months of his deal, however Darren Moore wouldn’t be drawn into commenting on specifics when asked about it directly.
Now, according to a report from Football Insider, Wednesday are seeking to tie Palmer down on a long-term deal that would end speculation over his future, especially given rumours linking him with a move away earlier in the summer.
The versatile 30-year-old is one of only two players who have played every single minute in League One so far this season – the other being Dominic Iorfa – and he has taken on the challenge regardless of where he’s been asked to play by Moore.
Palmer has played over 300 games in Wednesday colours since working his way up through the ranks from the Owls’ academy, and is clearly a player that his manager feels comfortable depending on as the 2021/22 season continues.
Sheffield Wednesday and new contracts
Wednesday have tied up a number of new contracts this year already after the likes of Barry Bannan, Josh Windass and Dominic Iorfa all committed their futures to the club, while talks remain ongoing with attacker, Callum Paterson.
For ‘Palms’, it remains to be seen exactly when a deal will get done, but all the involved parties will be keen to get the situation finalised as soon as possible so the defender can focus on his football.
