Ben shows his Sh­effield steel

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY SI­MON GRIVER

BEN Sa­har has re­turned to Chelsea af­ter a suc­cess­ful 10-week spell with Sh­effield Wed­nes­day in which he helped the Owls avoid rel­e­ga­tion.

The Is­raeli scored his third goal for the club in a 4-1 vic­tory over Nor­wich City which guar­an­teed Cham­pi­onship foot­ball next sea­son.

The 36,208 crowd at Hills­bor­ough went wild as Sa­har slot­ted home the sec­ond goal to put Wed­nes­day ahead af­ter they had fallen a goal be­hind. “I re­ally en­joyed my time at Wed­nes­day,” said Sa­har. “It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence and I’m re­ally grate­ful to the man­ager for giv­ing me so much time in the first team.”

Still only 18, Sa­har des­per­ately needed the con­fi­dence boost that his time in Sh­effield has given him af­ter be­ing un­able to com­mand a first team place whilst on loan at QPR in the first half of the sea­son.

He also failed to make the Chelsea first team in Jan­uary even though the Blues had most of their strik­ers in­jured or on duty at the African Cup of Na­tions.

“I’m back at Chelsea now and we will sit down next week and dis­cuss my fu­ture,” he said. “I’ll make the de­ci­sion which is best for my fu­ture. I’m aware of in­ter­est from Pre­mier League clubs and an­other one over­seas.”

JC Sport has learned that Chelsea still see a fu­ture for Sa­har at Stam­ford Bridge but may send him on loan again next sea­son with FA Cup fi­nal­ists Portsmouth among the clubs in­ter­ested.
