As reported earlier on Vital Sheffield Wednesday, the Owls have confirmed former Preston North End midfielder Chris Sedgwick as their first signing of the summer.
The lifelong Wednesdayite has penned a two-year deal with the club and will officially join the club on Thursday, July 1.
"It`s great to be here. I`ve wanted to play for Sheffield Wednesday for such a long time so to get this sorted is a great feeling.
"I`ve supported Wednesday all my life, my family are all Wednesdayites too so to get this opportunity is fantastic."
The 30-year-old has enjoyed much experience at Championship level and was a key part of Preston's squad in the six years he was at Deepdale.
And Owls boss Alan Irvine knows his qualities well from his time as boss of the Lilywhites.
He said: "Chris is a player I know very well from my time at Preston. I know him as a player and a professional and he has all the right attributes I am looking for.
"He is very experienced, very fit, has the strength of character to play at Hillsborough and has a tremendous work ethic. He is also a Sheffield Wednesday supporter and really wants to play for this club.
"I enjoyed working with him at Preston and I am looking forward to working with him again with Sheffield Wednesday."
