Sky Bet Championship side Sheffield Wednesday are interested in offering defender Liam Palmer a new deal at the club, according to reports from reliable journalist Alan Nixon.
The 27-year old has been a reliable figure for Wednesday over the years, and is one of many players that have impressed since coming through the youth ranks at Hillsborough.
The defender, who made his first-team debut for the Owls in a League Cup clash against Bury in 2010, and has since made over 200 appearances for his boyhood club, and is still very much a regular figure under new boss Steve Bruce.
The homegrown star’s contract at the club expires at the end of the season, but after nailing down his place in the team despite strong competition from the likes of Dominic Iorfa, reports have surfaced that Wednesday are keen to tie Palmer down to a new deal.
SHEFF WED. Want to give Liam Palmer a new deal as soon as possible One of those Steve Bruce deffo plans to keep.

Steve Bruce has turned the tide around at Wednesday since his arrival last month – the former Aston Villa manager has guided the Owls to 14th in the league table, just seven points off the play-offs ahead of a clash with Sheffield United on Monday.
This is really good news for Wednesday if they do decide to offer Palmer a new deal.
He is a player that has certainly divided opinions at Hillsborough since coming through the youth ranks, but we are seeing him at his best this season after a turbulent campaign thus far.
He loves the club, the fans love him, and it would be great news if both parties agreed over a new deal.
