Please sign: Sheffield Wednesday fans plead for Michael Hector to sign permanently

At the age of 26 and after 15 loan spells away from both Reading and Chelsea, could Michael Hector finally be about to settle down? Sheffield Wednesday fans certainly hope so.

The loan star has fuelled speculation on Twitter that he could stay around for longer than this season by posting an image of some personalised Wednesday shin pads he was given whilst on international duty with Jamaica.

Fans have been busy tweeting the player in the replies section by asking for him to stay permanently once his loan deal from Chelsea comes to a close at the end of the season.

Some supporters have meanwhile issued statements declaring that the shin pads are specifically intended for the new campaign.

Hector has played 31 times in all competitions this term and has become a key figure under Steve Bruce at Hillsborough.

Here’s what the Owls’ fan-base have been saying about one of their key men.
