Owls boss Paul Sturrock has handed the winger a contract until the end of the season, with the prospect of a longer deal provided he performs to his potential.
Partridge is happy to be at the club and is looking to forge a career in South Yorkshire.
"I'm happy to stay," Partridge said.
"The gaffer called me into his office and told me he'd like to keep me until the end of the season.
"As soon as he said that, money didn't come into it. The lads and the coaching staff have been great, and the gaffer's been good to me.
"It's been brilliant to be here.
"It's a bit early to be thinking about next season, but it's always at the back of your mind.
"It's important for me to have a good second half of the season."
