Kieran Lee has set his sights on helping the Owls get back to the Premier League after signing a new two-year contract extension.

The box-to-box midfielder, who moved to Hillsborough four years ago, was set to become a free agent next summer.

But the 28-year-old agreed fresh terms yesterday, committing his future to the Championship club until 2019.

Lee told The Star: “I spoke to the club about it over the summer. It all happened quite quickly.

“I have really enjoyed it here from the very first day.

“It is the happiest I’ve been in my career. It is good to have got it done so I can now concentrate on next season.”

Lee has played 142 matches for the Owls, chipping in with 14 goals. The former Manchester United trainee was Wednesday’s leading appearance maker (52) during the 2015/16 season.

“We have progressed every year that I have been here,” stated Lee, who bagged seven goals last year. “Obviously ur aim is to get back into the Premier League and I believe we can do it.

“We came so close last season but the lads are refreshed and focused and ready to go again.”
