Sheffield Wednesday winger Kadeem Harris has claimed that both he and defender Julian Borner have more to give, after impressive starts to their time as Owls players.
The pair both made the move to Hillsborough on free transfers during the summer, with the duo making themselves ever-present features in the Owls’ Championship starting lineup since their arrivals at the club.
Harris has already scored two goals for Wednesday this season, while Borner opened his account for the club on Friday night, as he turned home Harris’ effort to give his side the lead in their 1-1 draw away at Cardiff.
After the game, Harris was asked which of the pair had been the better signing for Wednesday this season, with the 26-year-old responding in diplomatic fashion, by telling The Star: “I don’t know; Julian has been tremendous this season, every single game.
“I think it was brilliant move, but we can both give a lot more than we have so far.”
Who has been the better signing for Sheffield Wednesday?
Reflecting on Borner’s start to life at Hillsborough, it seems Harris was impressed by the German centre back immediately, as the winger continued: “I am not surprised at his start to the season. I saw him in pre-season and saw his love for the game, how much he wanted to do well here.
“He has had a good start and hopefully he can do even better with the games to come.”
Following that draw in Wales, and the rest of the weekend’s results, Wednesday are still eighth in the Championship standings, ahead of the visit of resurgent Stoke City to Hillsborough on Tuesday night.
This is a pretty safe response from Harris.
I think it shows both his competitiveness, and desire to maintain a positive spirit within the camp, that he was reluctant to give a definitive answer here.
Both players have been hugely impressive since their arrivals at Hillsborough, and you only have to look at their records this season in terms of appearances to see how highly thought of they are around the club.
Even so, given the way Borner has instantly made himself something of a cult figure with the Owls’ fans, and the fact that he is having to adapt to a new country as well as a new club, I’m going to say that he has narrowly been the better of the two signings in my opinion.
