Brought in on a free from Cardiff City with a point to prove, the 26-year-old caught the eye in his early displays before dwindling a touch in more recent months.

But he believes the break has been good for both the club and from an individual perspective.

“The season pausing where it has wasn't ideal because we wanted to change our run of form as soon as possible,” he told Alan Biggs’ Sheffield Live programme .

“We were brilliant up until Christmas time then we had a dip in form. From then it went downhill but I've always said this is a close-knit squad and one full of confidence.

“Form is temporary, class is permanent. It's only a matter of time before our form and form for myself changes.

“We've had more than enough time to reflect. For me personally, I can't wait to get back. I've never been more ready.

“Even at the start of the season when I was looking forward to the season ahead, I don't think I was as ready or mentally-focused as I am now.

Kadeem Harris has vowed to get back to his early-season form for Sheffield Wednesday.

“I've had time to reflect how games have gone since the New Year. We're all reflecting on ourselves and our personal performances.

“I'm sure when we get back we'll be more of the team we were in the first part of the season more than we were in the second part.”
