SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY HAVE handed Irish international Keiren Westwood a new contract. 

The 34-year-old goalkeeper has become a fan favourite at Hillsborough since arriving from Sunderland in the summer of 2014. and extends his stay for two more years.  

During his time with the Owls, he has been named the club’s Player of the Year and been included in the Championship’s Team of the Year.

Last season saw Westwood lose his place in the Wednesday team to Cameron Dawson. However, he fought back to reclaim the number one shirt in the second second half of the campaign under manager Steve Bruce. 

The Manchester-born stopper has got 21 senior caps for Ireland to his name — the last of which was two years ago — and featured in Mick McCarthy’s squad for the opening two matches of the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
