‘The size’ of Sheffield Wednesday attracted Florian Kamberi to the ‘big’ English League One club after his spell at Aberdeen.

Kamberi spent the second half of last season at Aberdeen on loan from Swiss side St Gallen, six months after leaving fellow Scottish Premiership club Hibs. Sheffield Wednesday have snapped him up ahead of their League One season under manager Darren Moore. The striker scored once for Aberdeen.

Speaking of his move, Kamberi said: “I’m very happy, delighted to have everything done now with the paperwork and I can’t wait for the first game in front of the crowd. I got a FaceTime call from the gaffer, around 15 or 20 minutes and he spoke about how he sees the club, the project here, how he sees me and what sort of role I would have.

“From the first moment, I was very excited and I knew it was a no-brainer for me to come here.

 

“It’s the size of the club, the stadium and the manager. He knows what football is and I know I can develop under him. To play in England was always a dream of mine and now I’m at a big club.”
