Buxton is currently the Owls' longest serving player alongside Jermaine Johnson after signing a new two-year deal earlier this week and is hoping for an improved showing next season after a last-day win over Middlesbrough preserved npower Championship status for another year.

"My goal as a player is to get to the Premier League and that is Wednesday's goal," Buxton told the club's official website.

"There was a bit of interest from elsewhere, but as soon as Wednesday said they were offering me a new deal, that was all I wanted.

"Depending on who we can bring in, hopefully we can challenge for the play-offs.

"It's an honour and a privilege to play at Hillsborough and I can't wait for the new season to start now my future is sorted."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
