Sam Hutchinson has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with Sheffield Wednesday.
The versatile midfielder was in the final year of his deal at Hillsborough but has pledged his future until the summer of 2018.
Hutchinson has become the fifth player to commit his long term future to the Owls in just two days following new deals for Barry Bannan, Glenn Loovens and Atdhe Nuhiu, plus the permanent signing of loanee Jack Hunt from Crystal Palace.
He first arrived on loan from Chelsea in February 2014 before making the switch permanent that summer.
His 2014/15 campaign was blighted by injury but he has thrived this season in a combative midfield role.
With injuries to the Wednesday rear guard, Hutchinson has also featured at centre half this term, performing well before picking up a back problem against Middlesbrough earlier this month.
