Owls goalkeeper Cameron Dawson has today penned a new three-year contract.

Dawson, a product of the club’s youth system, has committed his future to the Championship club until the summer of 2020.

He said: “I’m delighted to get this done and now I have another three years to really kick on. I will work hard as always and see what the next three years will bring.

The 21-year-old, who enjoyed a brief loan stint at Wycombe Wanderers last season, made his Wednesday debut as a substitute in their Hillsborough loss to Premier League bound Brighton and Hove Albion last October.

Dawson, who has been on the club’s since the age of 15, played on three more occasions in the Owls’ march to the play-offs. He was a sub versus Cardiff City and made starts against Queens Park Rangers and Derby County.

“In many ways, last year was my breakthrough year,” said Dawson. “I managed to make my league debut for Wycombe in League 2 and came back here to make four appearances.

“When you’ve had that, you just want more. I can’t describe the feeling you get but you want more of it. That is the aim.”
