SH­EFFIELD Wed­nes­day boss Stu­art Gray in­sists Chris Kirk­land wants to stay at the club, de­spite his con­tract be­ing up this sum­mer.

The Owls have 13 play­ers who could leave for free at the end of the sea­son but Gray has been sound­ing out those he wants to stay – start­ing with 32-year-old keeper Kirk­land, who joined the club two sea­sons ago from Wi­gan Ath­letic.

“I would imag­ine Chris will have sev­eral other op­tions,” said Gray.

“It was just putting a marker down to see if he would be in­ter­ested.

“He’s keen to stay, but that will be down to his con­tract, with his agent and the club agree­ing.”
