Daniel Pudil has refused to rule out signing a permanent deal with Sheffield Wednesday, according to HITC.
The Czech defender joined Carlos Carvalhal’s side in the summer on a season-long loan from newly-promoted Watford, and he has established himself in the starting XI.
The 29-year old admitted that he had his long-term future in mind when he agreed to join the Owls as he doesn’t want to move from club to club, mainly because of his son.
Speaking to HITC, Pudil said: “I wanted to be at a club for a season or move permanently. I am not just doing this for myself but also my family,”
“My son is going to school and I don’t want to bring him here for seven to eight months and move him again. I would like to stay in Sheffield.”
Pudil’s desire to stay will be good news for the club’s Head Coach as well as the fans as he has caught they eye with his performances at left-back.
However, he also admitted that the decision was not solely his to make, saying that it will be down to the chairman as to whether he signs permanently or not.
“If the chairman wants me at the end of the season, I would be perfectly happy [to stay].”
Pudil will now put his mind to impressing the chairman enough to earn a permanent deal at Hillsborough.
The Owls currently sit in 14th place in the Sky Bet Championship, having won twice, drawn three times and lost three times so far this season.
