The defender, 29, who has made 36 appearances for the Owls this season and has been a regular starter, is out of contract in the summer.

"I'd definitely like to stay here longer," he told the club's official website.

"Hopefully I'm going to stay and we'll have a more successful season next season.

"I feel like I've done well this season, but the important thing is how the team are doing and the aim now has to be to stay up and prepare for the next season as a Championship club."

Wednesday take on derby rivals Barnsley in a crunch relegation clash at Hillsborough on Saturday and Buxton believes the result could have a huge bearing on his side's survival chances.

"It's going to be a huge game and I'm sure fans will be there in their numbers," he added.

"We've beaten them at their place already this season and we need to beat them again.

"We're going to have to scrap and fight for everything and hopefully we can get what we need.

"We have to play the teams down there with us, starting with Barnsley on Saturday, so it's in our hands what will happen.

"If we beat those teams then we will have earned the right to stay up."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
