Owls boss Paul Sturrock has completed his first signing of the summer by bringing Milton Keynes Dons midfielder Wade Small to Hillsborough on a three-year deal, subject to a medical.

The 22-year-old will move to Hillsborough for an undisclosed fee, and is likely to fill the gap left by former fans favourite Jon-Paul McGovern, who was told he could leave the club after failing to secure a new contract.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock told the official site: ‘I’ve seen Wade several times over the last couple of years and he’s our type of signing. He is very quick, can play in a variety of positions offensively and has high potential. I hope he does very well for Sheffield Wednesday.’

Small came through the academy at the Dons and has made 99 appearances since making his league debut in October 2003 against Coventry City. He netted twelve times during his stay in Milton Keynes.
