Some Sheffield Wednesday fans want the Owls to give Liam Palmer a new contract.

Palmer is one of nine players whose Hillsborough deals expire at the end of June.

 

Of those, however, only he, George Boyd and Keiren Westwood have featured regularly in recent weeks, and look the most likely to be offered extensions.

But after a man of the match display against Sheffield United on Monday - a continuation of the form he has shown since Jos Luhukay's departure as manager in December - Palmer's situation is becoming all the more pressing.

Palmer, who began his career in central midfield, has spent the past few campaigns as Sheffield Wednesday's second-choice right-back, even after Jack Hunt's sale last July.

Post-Luhukay, however, the 27-year-old has successfully ousted Ashley Baker and kept January signing Dominic Iorfa waiting in the wings.

Should Sheffield Wednesday offer Palmer a new contract?
