Sheffield Wednesday take on Hull City in the Championship play-off final this weekend and for one Wednesday player it could be his last game as an Owl.

Alex Lopez is currently only loan at the club from Spanish side Celta Vigo and has expressed a desire to return to the Galician’s this summer.

But that does not mean he doesn’t see a bright future for Sheffield Wednesday.

Speaking with Mundo Deportivo he made reference to Leicester City when discussing where Wednesday could go from here:

"What has been achieved by Leicester is an encouragement for all teams. No just the average English football team, but throughout the world.

"The story that has the club for their wonderful fans, by the magnitude that their support has been noted. They constantly express their appreciation to the team for having come this far."

The Owls have certainly impressed this season, but can they really dream as big as Leicester have gone this campaign.

The Foxes shocked the world by winning the Premier League title by ten clear points from Arsenal and were undoubtedly the best team in England this season.

Like Wednesday the club had spent time in the third-tier before arising a better team and club, eventually leading to this incredible season.

Sheffield Wednesday fans can do no harm in dreaming big. But first of all they need to make sure they get past Hull City at Wembley.
