The 29-year-old, who joined the Owls from Stoke in January 2009 following a loan spell, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

Buxton, voted player of the year at Hillsborough this season, told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to sign here.

"I've enjoyed my time at the club and I'm pleased it's all been sorted early so I can look forward to my future here and the new season.

"The supporters here are top class and I would like to thank them for all the support they have shown to me and for voting me as their player of the year.

"It means a lot to me to remain here and be one of the longest serving players at this club because it is a fantastic place to play your football."

Buxton was a virtual ever-present in the side last season, making 44 appearances as the Owls secured another season in the Championship with a last-day win over Middlesbrough.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
