Chris Maguire paints a clear picture of his Sheffield Wednesday future

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Sheffield Wednesday attacking star Chris Maguire has made it clear where he sees his future.

Sheffield Wednesday attacking star Chris Maguire has admitted in the Sheffield Star that he would be happy to stay at the club.

Maguire’s contract expires at the end of this season according to transfermarkt, but he’s relaxed over how he sees things panning out with regards to his future.

“I am enjoying my football and loving it here. I would be happy to stay. The boys are brilliant and so is the manager. It (contract situation) is out of my hands. I can only keep performing,” said Maguire.

“I know I have not had the best of seasons but I have contributed at times. When things aren’t going well for you, you dig in. I’m not that type of player to hide when things aren’t going my way.”

Seven goals and two assists from all Championship performances is definitely a tally that he would have been looking for greater figures from throughout this season.

He’s started 33 league games and has suffered some inconsistency at times, but manager Stuart Gray deserves some credit for sticking by him when other managers may have made it difficult for him to find any form.

Hopefully he can knuckle down over the club’s remaining games and made the decision over the offer of a new contract a no brainer on the part of club officials.

It’s also encouraging from the manager’s point of view that he feels he has that gritty and determined mentality to dig in and show those fighting qualities, which are important at any club towards the end of a season.

Next up for the Owls is a difficult game against Leeds United this weekend, which will be difficult to prepare for and predict.
