SH­EFFIELD Wed­nes­day goal­keeper Chris Kirk­land has in­sisted that he is happy to stay at Hills­bor­ough af­ter he was linked with Hull .

Kirk­land played a key role in Wed­nes­day re­tain­ing their Cham­pi­onship sta­tus and wants to re­pay the sup­port they have given him.

He said: “I’m happy where I am. I’m pleased to be here. It’s a big club and they have looked af­ter me from day one.

“The staff and the gaffer have been bril­liant and the fans are mag­nif­i­cent.

“I’m de­lighted with the way things are go­ing, and we’ve stayed up, which is the most im­por­tant thing for ev­ery­one in­volved.

“Hope­fully we can push on next sea­son. If we can push up the league it will be great.”

Kirk­land has had more than his fair share of in­jury prob­lems in the past and is grate­ful that he could re­pay

the faith Wed­nes­day

showed in him. He added:“I told them how fit I was and how con­fi­dent I was that I could last the sea­son, and they trusted me.”
