Kieran Lee extended his contract with Sheffield Wednesday in July 2016, signing a new three-year deal that runs until summer 2019.

The 28-year-old joined Wednesday in May 2012 after falling out of contract with Oldham.

From then, the midfield ace has gone from strength to strength during his spell at Hillsborough.

In total, Lee has made 142 appearances, chipping in with 14 goals.

After four seasons so far with the Owls, it wasn’t until the final game in his second campaign that Lee notched his first goal for the club away at Ipswich.

But since then, scoring goals has become a big part of the midfielder’s game, underlined by his haul of seven in 2015/16 – the highest tally of his career.

Lee hit a number of crucial goals throughout that campaign, most notably a key strike in the play-off semi final victory over Brighton.

He made 52 appearances for Wednesday last term - unquestionably a key performer in the Owls’ engine room and regarded highly by head coach Carlos Carvalhal.
