Sheffield Wednesday captain Lee Bullen is hoping to sign a new one-year deal.

Bullen has extended his stay at Hillsborough on a season-by-season basis since joining from Dunfermline in 2004.

And the 36-year-old, who has made more than 120 appearances for The Owls, is hoping to stay with the club next term.

"I'm happy here and I enjoy it," he told the Sheffield Star.

"I don't foresee any problems. If I was a betting man, I would say I'll be here next season, definitely.

"I'm not difficult to deal with, I'm not a greedy person, and it's a privilege to be offered a new contract.

"A one-year deal is fine by the club, and it's all right for me as well. It keeps me on my toes."

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws has voiced his disappointment at West Brom's decision last week to recall Steve Watson from his loan spell at Hillsborough.

Tony Mowbray took Watson back to West Brom as cover for injuries and suspensions but he did not play against Coventry on Saturday.

"We are obviously very disappointed that they have pulled him back to just go into their squad and not into their team but I think they see us as a rival for a play-off spot now," Laws told the Birmingham Mail.

Watson, who made 11 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday in his time with the club, believes he could return to Hillsborough next season.

"I wouldn't rule out the possibility of maybe rejoining next season, but obviously that is a million miles away from happening at the moment," he told the club's official website.
