Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland has resolved his personal issues

Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland has responded to recent speculation by reaffirming his commitment to the club.

Kirkland, who joined Wednesday on a free transfer over the summer, has confirmed he was given special dispensation and time away from the club to deal with a private matter that has now been resolved.

The former England international told the club's official website: "There was a private matter I had to deal with and I'm pleased to say that it is now resolved. The manager gave me the time I needed and now I'm looking forward to joining the squad for pre-season next week."

He added: "I'd like to thank the manager, the chairman and the vice-chairman for helping my situation by being so completely understanding.

"I'd also like to say thank you to the Sheffield Wednesday supporters for their patience. I can assure them I am 110% committed to the club and really looking forward to next week and the Championship season ahead."
