Sheffield Wednesday player confirms crucial contract detail ahead of final day drama.



Sheffield Wednesday defender Bambo Diaby discussed his Owls future ahead of this weekend’s crucial encounter against Sunderland.

The 26-year-old centre back, who joined the Owls from Preston North End in the summer, has not had an easy debut season. He signed for Xisco, only to have the Spaniard leave a few weeks later, and has missed time due to injury and selection.

In recent weeks, however, he has stepped up in a big manner when needed, stepping into the team in difficult situations and handling them brilliantly to help the Owls win big against Queens Park Rangers, Blackburn Rovers, and, most recently, West Bromwich Albion. It didn’t matter if he got 90 minutes or 13.

Unlike so many others in the squad, he has more than just personal pride on the line, with the centre back confirming that his Wednesday contract extends into next season, so he’s working hard to ensure that he and his teammates are still Championship players when the 2024/25 season begins.

“You can see what we’re growing and growing,” he told The Star. “And when you return for the next season, you want to continue that work. I am not saying’see you later’ because I am excited. I want to be a good footballer, and he has one game left to complete before we start thinking about next season.

“But, individually, if we stay in the Championship then we want to do big things always. In the summer I always do my preparation for the next season to give the best that I can, and I think if every player thinks like that then we can do something amazing.”

Diaby has appeared 34 times in all competitions for Wednesday this season, and only eight players have played more minutes than him; this weekend, at the Stadium of Light, he’ll be hoping to play his part in one more for 2023/24 and help his side secure their second-tier status.
