Carlos Carvalhal has claimed that he could potentially remain at Sheffield Wednesday for the next decade after agreeing a new deal with the Owls, the Sheffield Star reports.

According to the Star, the Portuguese has agreed a new three-year deal after a stunning first season at Hillsborough. But rather than just focus on what he could achieve in that length of time, he has suggested that his tenure could potentially be much longer.

"I don't need money - I'm good with my life. If this happens [staying] I'm happy. Being happy is the people around you enjoying what you are doing," he told the Star.

"If they are, I can stay here 10 years. If they aren't, it will be different for me."

Judging by what the former Besiktas boss has achieved during his first campaign with the Owls, it appears that most Wednesday fans will be delighted to see the 50-year-old stay for that length of time.

Despite seeming an odd appointment when he was given the job with the Championship side - he had no previous experience in England, and is something of a journeyman manager - he has led an unfancied Wednesday team into the top six, and done it with a style of play that has received many plaudits.

And if he can lead the Owls to victory in the play-off final this weekend, then most Wednesday fans will surely want to hand him a 10-year contract right there and then.
