Owls chairman Dejphon Chansiri says Carlos Carvalhal’s performance will determine how long he stays at Hillsborough, not his contract.

Thai businessman Chansiri has declined to divulge the length of the deal handed to Carvalhal as head coach. And his message to the Portuguese is clear - perform and there is no need to fear the axe.

“The length of the contract is not important at this moment in time,” Chansiri, speaking via an interpreter, told The Star. “The most important thing is his performance. If he does a very good job with Sheffield Wednesday, he will stay here with us until we go up to the Premier League.

“If he does a good performance and has developed the team, he will stay as long as he is doing well for the team.”

Chansiri is demanding a much more attack-minded approach next season.

“Carlos fits my philosophy of attacking, aggressive football with entertainment for the fans,” he said. “We want those fans to be entertained.

“If he puts everything he has into that and all the effort he can while doing his best, I am okay with him.”

Wednesday, meanwhile, are close to taking their tally of new faces to eight, with Lewis McGugan on the brink of joining from Watford. The midfielder has completed a medical but is still in talks over personal terms.
