Owls defender Lewis Buxton is eagerly anticipating the start of the 2013/14 campaign having committed the next two years of his career to Hillsborough.
And the Isle of Wight product – now Wednesday’s longest-serving current player alongside Jermaine Johnson – is hopeful the club can mount a push for the play-offs having acclimatised to the Championship last time out.
He said: “My goal as a player is to get to the Premier League and that is Wednesday's goal.
“There was a bit of interest from elsewhere but as soon as Wednesday said they were offering me a new deal, that was all I wanted.
"Depending on who we can bring in, hopefully we can challenge for the play-offs."
The 29-year-old also issued a vote of thanks to Wednesdayites for their outstanding support through 2012-13, while urging more of the same next season.
He added: “Everyone at the football club is grateful for the level of support we received last season.
“From the first day at Derby to the last game against Middlesbrough, the fans were unbelievable.
“We couldn’t ask for more as players so all I can say is ‘more of the same please’ and I know that’s what they will do.
“It’s an honour and a privilege to play at Hillsborough and I can’t wait for the new season to start now my future is sorted.
“It’s only a couple of weeks until the fixtures come out and I’m really looking forward to seeing who we get on the first day.”
