Sheffield Wednesday defender Daniel Pudil's impressive performances in the second half of this season have been rewarded with a new contract.
Pudil has been one of Wednesday's most consistent performers since Jos Luhukay took charge in January, moving into a central defensive role as the manager switched to three at the back.

The Czech international had spoken recently of his desire to stay in Sheffield and how he felt the formation change under Luhukay could prolong his career.
“It’s for someone else to say I’m playing well,” he said. “This formation we are playing I feel much more comfortable. I don’t want to say I cant play left back anymore but age is killing me a little bit, I can not get up and down like I used to. I feel much better in this position. “Maybe this position can extend my career a little longer and fingers crossed I can get another few years over here.”
Pudil, who signed from Watford, initially on loan in August 2015, before moving permanently the following season, has signed a one-year deal.
The 35-times capped international has made 101 appearances for Wednesday, scoring four goals.
