Numerous clubs had been monitoring Iorfa’s situation as he entered the final year of his contract, but the defender has put pen-to-paper on a new deal and will remain with the Owls for an extra year.
Speaking to the club’s website as the news was announced, Iorfa said, “I’m delighted to get it over the line and I can focus on the season ahead and the future.
“Everyone knows the club’s ambition this year is to get promoted and when I see everything that has happened over the last month or so, it feels like a really good place to be at the moment and that’s a big positive.
“The club is moving in the right direction and it’s something I am pleased to be a part of. Things are looking up, we’ve started the season well, the fans are back, there’s real optimism around the place and long may that continue.”
