Thomas James "Tom" Lees (born 18 November 1990) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Sheffield Wednesday. He is primarily a centre-back but he can also play at right-back.

Lees was born in Birmingham, but moved to Knaresborough, North Yorkshire when he was 4 years old. Lees began his career in the youth teams at Leeds before turning professional with the Yorkshire club in early 2009. He made his professional debut whilst on a season-long loan at Accrington Stanley in their Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round victory over Oldham Athletic in September of the same year. He joined Bury on a similar deal the following season and was voted the Players' Player of the Year in the Shakers' promotion-winning campaign before returning to Leeds in the summer of 2012 where he established himself as a first team regular. In September 2012, Lees was called up to the England U21 squad by manager Stuart Pearce.
