The Sheffield Wednesday academy graduate was his side’s man of the match for Monday’s Steel City Derby.
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.
This is what those of a Sheffield Wednesday persuasion are saying about the Owls academy product on Twitter…
Give Palmer a new deal asap btw— H (@H_Groombridge) 4 March 2019
Liam Palmer played out of his skin last night. Looks a completely new player under Bruce. I think it’s only fair he gets a new contract in the summer after recent performances #swfc— J Λ M Ξ S (@FourFourJames) 5 March 2019
#swfc Major decision’s after tonight – get Kieren Westwood & Liam Palmer signed to a new contract ASAP and get Michael Hector signed from Chelsea— Lee Bowland (@bigleeb) 4 March 2019
Been a massive critic of Palmer of the past but ever since Bruce and team have come in, hes been brilliant every game. Lad deserves a new contract— Con1 (@Plattssyy) 4 March 2019

Deserves a new contract #swfc— Warren Watson (@warren_watson) 5 March 2019
if Palmer carries on he’ll be off to Real Madrid next season……. #swfc— Tom Benton (@BentonTom) 4 March 2019
Palmer has been brilliant this past dozen or so games but is it like Nuhiu last season and simply because he is out of contract? Makes you wish you could put all players on one year deals #swfc— RocketOwl (@RocketOwl1986) 5 March 2019
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?
