Sheffield Wednesday winger Kadeem Harris has revealed the reasons behind his move to Hillsborough.
The 26-year-old joined the Owls in the summer on a free transfer after leaving Cardiff City.
As mentioned, Harris arrived in South Yorkshire in the summer transfer window following the expiry of his contract at the Cardiff City Stadium.
So far he has been a regular for the Owls and has started every single Championship fixture for them, chipping in with two goals and two assists in that time (Transfermarkt).
Harris has been discussing the reasoning behind his move to Sheffield Wednesday, and he has admitted that once he heard of their interest it was the only place he wanted to be.
Speaking to the Sheffield Star, Harris said: “Sheffield Wednesday is a massive club. When I was deciding who to sign for I thought: ‘they’ve got a great team there and they’re destined to play in the Premier League’. I wanted to be a part of that.
“When I heard Sheffield Wednesday from the other teams that were interested, it was always Sheffield Wednesday from the start. There were rumours of this team or that team but I wanted this one. It’s about the direction the team is going on and wanting to be on board with that.”
Based on the opening 16 games of the season, it looks as though Harris made the right choice in moving to Hillsborough.
He is starting week in, week out for his new club and they are certainly a contender for promotion to the Premier League, currently sitting in eighth place in the Championship and just three points adrift of the play-offs (BBC Sport).
Harris will hope that he can retain his place in Garry Monk’s starting 11 over the next few months and that he can help them win promotion.
