Prutton signs new deal

Sheffield Wednesday have today confirmed that central midfielder David Prutton has agreed a new deal that will see him stay at Hillsborough for another season.

The 31-year-old was one of six out of contract Owls players to be offered new deals at the end of last season and he is the third of the six to make his decision official. Full-back Lewis Buxton has already agreed a 2-year contract while goalkeeper Stephen Bywater has opted for a move away from S6 and has signed for fellow Championship side Millwall. Jamaican winger Jermaine Johnson has hinted that he will sign a deal to stay at Hillsborough while Giles Coke and Miguel Llera are yet to make a decision.

Prutton was loaned out to Scunthorpe in League One last season and his Wednesday days were seemingly behind him. The former Southampton midfielder forced his way back into the side in the second half of the season and became a first team regular as the Owls secured their Championship status.

His experience should prove to be a valuable asset to the developing young midfielders in the Wednesday squad and he is regarded as a positive influence in and around the dressing room as well.
