"I am happy here and playing my football.

"With the amount of games that we had over Christmas, you almost don't have time to think about anything else.

"We have now got a couple of other big games coming up so we are focused on it."

Boss Garry Monk has hinted he would like to keep hold of Fox, who has clocked up 22 appearances this season.

Fox, a former Wales Under-21 international, said: "I am concentrating on what I am doing on the pitch.

"If I keep playing week in, week out, I'm sure something will happen but I am happy here and enjoying my football.

"I think the club is going in the right direction."

The 26-year-old, a model of consistency in recent months, is expected to line up at left-back when the Owls go to Championship leaders Leeds United on Saturday.

"It will be a big challenge but I think it comes at a good time for us,” said Fox. “We are going there to win and that has always been our mindset.

“We will be looking to impose our game plan on to them.”
