Grant: New deal
Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Lee Grant has agreed a new three-year contract at Hillsborough.
The new deal will keep Grant at Wednesday until the summer of 2012 with the option for another year.
Grant has established himself as one of the best keepers outside of the Premier League since his arrival from Derby two years ago.
Owls boss Brian Laws was delighted to tie down Grant to a new long-term contract.
"I firmly believe that Lee is one of the best English goalkeepers around at the moment and I don't think there is a better goalkeeper in the Championship at present," Laws told the club's official website.
"The fact that a player of Lee's calibre has committed to Sheffield Wednesday for the long term is a clear sign that we are building a competitive squad for the future of this club."
Grant was happy to extend his stay in Yorkshire and he is confident of achieving success with the club in the future.
"It was an easy decision for me to commit my long-term future to Sheffield Wednesday. There is a real feeling of togetherness running through the club at the moment and there is a good chance that we can achieve success in the coming years."
