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.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
