Sheffield Wednesday defender Tommy Spurr has signed a new deal with the club.
The left-back only made his first-team debut in April but has been a key member of the side this season, making 17 appearances in all competitions.
He has put pen-to-paper on a contract spanning until 2009, and has the option of extending the deal for a further year.
"I'm delighted to sign a new contract with Sheffield Wednesday," Spurr enthused.
"I'd like to thank Brian Laws and the club for giving me the opportunity to continue playing for The Owls."
Goalkeeper Shwan Jalal, meanwhile, has failed to earn a deal with Sheffield Wednesday and has returned to Woking.
Jalal moved to Hillsborough for an initial one-month loan in November with a view to a possible long-term stay.
However, Laws was not convinced he was ready for Championship football and has let him go back to the Conference.
On-loan Fulham keeper Mark Crossley, who is expected to start against Southampton on Saturday after shaking off a hamstring injury, is set to be offered an extended deal.
