New deal for Tudgay

Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday striker Marcus Tudgay has ended speculation over his future by signing a new four-year contract.

The Owls have turned down two summer bids from Burnley for their 26-year-old player of the year and recently accused the newly-promoted Clarets of deliberately trying to unsettle Tudgay.

Tudgay said: "My game has really developed in my time at Sheffield Wednesday and I'm extremely pleased to sign my new contract."

He added: "Following extensive talks with the manager and the chairman I'm convinced that this club has the capability to reach the Premier League within the next few years.

"There's a really positive environment throughout the club and you can see things are progressing. My focus now is building on what we achieved last season and helping us in our aim of reaching the play-offs."

Tudgay, who joined Wednesday from Derby in January 2006, was the Owls' top scorer last season with 14 goals and as well as being named player of the year also scooped Wednesday's goal of the season award for his memorable winning strike at Sheffield United.
