Keiren Westwood extended his current contract with Sheffield Wednesday in September 2015 and will now stay with the Owls until the summer of 2018.
Westwood has proved a pivotal performer between the sticks at Hillsborough since joining on a free transfer from Premier League side Sunderland in July 2014.
The Republic of Ireland international, who signed a two-year contract, scooped a raft of Player of the Year awards following his first campaign with the club in 2014/15.
He played in all but three Championship games for Wednesday and posted numerous outstanding displays as the Owls equalled a club record of 17 clean sheets.
Wednesday posted another 17 clean sheets in 2015/16, with Westwood making 37 appearances in total, in a season which saw the Owls miss out in the play-off final.
Westwood was a key figure in the Owls’ backline once again in 2016/17, helping Wednesday to achieve a place in the Championship play-offs for the second year running and scooping the club’s official Player of the Year award.
