Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has expressed joy at signing a new contract with the club and is hoping to help the team achieve promotion in the future.

The 34-year-old was a key player for Sheffield Wednesday last season and has signed a new two-year deal at the club, extending his stay at Hillsborough until the summer of 2021.

The goalkeeper was frozen out of the first-team picture under Jos Luhukay during the first half of last season, but was a key player under Steve Bruce in the second half of the campaign.

Westwood made 20 Championship appearances for Sheffield Wednesday last season, conceding 16 goals and keeping an impressive eleven clean sheets.

The shot-stopper has expressed his delight at signing a new deal and is hoping to win promotion with Sheffield Wednesday in the future.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at Sheffield Wednesday and I didn’t want that to end – I’m delighted it’s not,” Westwood told the club’s official website.

“I’d love to get promoted with Wednesday. I think everybody concerned with the club would and hopefully we can in the near future.”

Westwood has been an important player for Sheffield Wednesday over the past few years and has made a total of 164 appearances for the club.

The goalkeeper was part of the Owls side that reached back-to-back play-offs under Carlos Carvalhal and will be hoping to help the team achieve promotion next season.

Sheffield Wednesday finished 12th in the Championship table last season, but Bruce was able to guide the club to a top-half finish, after taking charge at Hillsborough in February.

The Verdict

Westwood has been an important player for Sheffield Wednesday over the past few years and he is understandably delighted to have signed a new deal at Hillsborough.

The goalkeeper will be determined to help the Owls achieve promotion next season, after coming close on a couple of occasions in the past.

Westwood is one of the best goalkeepers in the Championship, so it’s fantastic news for Sheffield Wednesday that he has committed his future to the club and it might turn out to be the best bit of business they conduct all summer.
