Owls defender Tom Lees extended his contract at Hillsborough in August 2016 until 2021.
The 26-year-old had two years to run on his previous contract but following an outstanding maiden season in S6, the commanding stopper extended until summer 2019.
Lees made the switch from Yorkshire rivals Leeds to Wednesday ahead of the 2014/15 campaign and proved to be an excellent addition and integral member of the squad.
In total, the coveted defender made 48 appearances for the Owls in 2014/15.
His impressive performances were a big factor in Wednesday’s outstanding season at the back, as the Owls registered 17 clean sheets – equalling a long-standing club record.
Wednesday achieved the same clean sheet feat in 2015/16 as the club cemented a place in the Championship play-offs, losing out 1-0 to Hull City in the final.
Lees remained a key part of the Owls backline last time out, as the club once again reached the play-offs.
The defender played 38 games and scored one goal, a towering header against Newcastle in a 2-1 victory at Hillsborough,
