Sheffield Wednesday star Fernando Forestieri admits he wants to finish his career at Hillsborough

The forward has been sensational for the Championship side this season.

Sheffield Wednesday have received a major boost as they continue preparing for their play-off campaign as Fernando Forestieri has told the Sheffield Star that he hopes to finish his career at Hillsborough.

The 26-year-old only joined the club in the summer but has already proved to be a fantastic signing, scoring 15 goals in the Championship to help the Owls secure a spot in the division's top six with just one game of the regular season to go.

And he explained that he has felt so welcome at Wednesday that he would love to be playing for the club until he hangs up his boots.

"I love this club. I love the team, the fans and players. The chairman has told me to sign for Wednesday another 10 years," he told the Star.

"I feel so good here. I love playing for this club. I hope I can finish my career here."

Though the former Watford man's season has been slightly overshadowed by a handful of unfair yellow cards for apparent diving, he will surely reflect positively on his first campaign with the club.

The fact that he is the Owls' top goalscorer is arguably all the more impressive given that Carlos Carvalhal has often utilised him in a slightly deeper role or on the wing to try and allow him to have a bigger impact on the game. 

And Carvalhal will be hoping that he can make an impact in the coming weeks to potentially ensure that should he remain with Wednesday for the duration of his career, he will spend the rest of his time with the club in the top flight.
