As covered here on GiveMeSport last week, Claude Dielna insist he is happy and loving life at Sheffield Wednesday, this despite interest form Premier League West Brom. 

The Frenchman formerly of Greek giants Olympiakos, has caught the eye since penning a three-year deal with the Championship club at the end of August 2014.


Reports in his native France had suggested that new Albion boss Tony Pulis, is keen to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window by signing the defender. In a bid to stave off the threat of relegation, however Dielna told reporters at Thursday's press conference prior to Wednesday's visit to Nottingham Forest this weekend.

“I like Sheffield Wednesday. For me, it’s a good club and I am very happy to be here. When I arrived, I needed to adapt. But I think I am playing well now but I know I need to up my level and I can play better.”


Dielna in the past has claimed that “a few” English clubs expressed an interest in his services after he left Olympiakos last summer. But, upon discussions with friend and ex-Wednesday captain Reda Johnson, he promptly made his mind up on his long-term future.

“When I knew Wednesday wanted me, I wanted to come here,” he said. “Every time I spoke to Reda [Johnson], he told me they are a very good team.”

Dielna added that this season is very important to the players, coaches and fans as Wednesday push on, in their quest to qualify for the Championship play-offs.
