‘Worth 10-15 points’ – Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday fans react to significant deal

Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has renewed his contract at Hillsborough ahead of the new season.

Westwood has put pen to paper on a fresh two-year deal which will keep him in South Yorkshire until the summer of 2021, and will see him extend his stay at the club to seven years.

The 34-year-old has thrived between the Owls’ sticks since Steve Bruce’s arrival at the club, after former boss Jos Luhukay opted to play Cameron Dawson in goals during the first half of the season.

The Republic of Ireland stopper made 21 appearances in the second half of the campaign, and he proved to be a crucial figure as his 11 clean sheets helped the Owls secure a mid-table finish in the Championship.

Wednesday shared the news via their Twitter account at Tuesday lunchtime:

Plenty of Owls fans were quick to respond to the announcement, and they expressed their delight as it had previously seemed uncertain whether Westwood would pen a new deal.

Here are some of the best reactions to the news…
