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."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
