Former Sheffield Wednesday player Carlton Palmer would like the Owls to tie Callum Paterson down to a new contract, with manager Darren Moore confirming talks are underway.

Last season in the Championship, Paterson scored nine goals and provided a further four for the Owls, with the 26-year-old forward featuring for Sheffield Wednesday five times already this season and has provided one assist in the game against Rotherham United.

Sheffield Wednesday have tied both Josh Windass and Dominic Iorfa down to new contracts this summer and Yorkshire Live has reported that Paterson would like to follow in their footsteps and extend his stay at Hillsborough.

Carlton Palmer would also like the Owls to tie Paterson down to a new deal, telling This is Futbol: “He’s been a mainstay for them, he’s the right age he’s 26, he plays consistently for them and does well for them. So, I wouldn’t think that’s a problem in terms of Sheffield Wednesday wanting to re-sign him. 

“But again, it’s not letting him run down into the last year of the contract, because that’s where the problem comes in, because once people know you run down into the last year of that contract, they can start negotiations, so it’s better to get that out of the way if you want to keep the player, which I’m sure Wednesday will do.

“Again, he’s another player who can play in the league above, so he’s one of them you want to tie down for as long as possible.”

The Owls have started the new campaign in good form, collecting ten points from the first possible 15 available, which took them as high as second in the League One table.

After a good start to the new season, Darren Moore will be hoping to get his side back on track after they lost their first game to Morecambe prior to the international break, but he will be buoyed that his side have been hard to break down, as they have only conceded one goal so far.
