Tom Lees has signed a contract extension at Sheffield Wednesday - just over a year after his last deal.

The defender has joined Ross Wallace, Kieran Lee and Keiren Westwood in committing his long-term future to the Championship club.
His old deal was due to expire in three years time but he will now remain at Hillsborough until 2021.

Several clubs, including Premier League sides Burnley and Sunderland, are understood to have been keeping close tabs on Lees in recent weeks.
It is a major coup for the Owls, who reached the Play-Off final last year, that they have persuaded the highly-sought after centre-back to extend his stay.
Since arriving from Leeds United in the summer of 2014, Lees has been one of the mainstays of Wednesday's mean defence over the past two seasons. He has featured 88 times, weighing in with three goals.

Lees said: “I spoke to the chairman and he has big ambitions for Sheffield Wednesday and I’m delighted to be part of it.

“I’m really happy here and like any player, I want to play in the Premier League.

“I am convinced we can achieve these ambitions together.

“We have made a commitment to each other and I am looking forward to helping Wednesday make the progress that everyone at the club wants.”
