Madine has spent nearly two years at Hillsborough after signing from Carlisle following a series of loan spells.

Madine, just 22, has praised the Owls faithful for their support and says he wants to remain in South Yorkshire for the remainder of his playing days.

"I absolutely love the fans," he said. "I hope I spend the rest of my life here. I really, really mean that. The support's absolutely incredible.

"Last season, the way people were with me, I've never had things like that.

"I've come from a background where I've not really had a lot. I go to places with my family now and people are like 'Gary, we'll sort you out, we'll get you this, we'll get you that'. People are just eager to do things for you and it really, really does make you feel special."

And although Madine has struggled to hit the heights he reached in last season's promotion campaign, he is still confident he is capable of playing at a higher level.

"I've got to say I want to play higher which, at the minute, I've not really done it at this level yet," he added.

"I know I can do and hopefully, you never know, a year or two, maybe a little longer, I can step up again."

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.

onfirmed. Nick Miller is a douche bag. Lazy, incoherent rant is what this article should be titled. And for the editor to have the temerity to pass this as acceptable writing is shocking. Ah well, anything for clicks right? You got mine. Well done. Your mother must be proud.
