Barry Bannan has expressed his delight at signing a new contract at Sheffield Wednesday on Twitter.

Bannan has penned a deal which will keep him at Hillsborough until 2019.

And the Scotland international midfielder was pleased to have secured his future, at a club where he feels so comfortable.

Bannan signed a short term contract at Wednesday, after signing from Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.

The news of Bannan's contract extension, follows Jack Hunt signing a permanent transfer yesterday.
