Owls Sign Mellor On Season Loan

Owls Sign Mellor On Season Loan

The busy day of transfer activity has continued in S6 today with Preston North End striker Neil Mellor the latest to become an Owl.

Sheffield-born Mellor has penned a season-long loan at Hillsborough and will join his new team-mates on their pre-season training camp in Austria, which starts on Saturday.

Owls boss Alan Irvine told the official SWFC website: 'Neil is a player I know very well from my time at Preston and I am delighted to bring him to Sheffield Wednesday for the season.

'We've worked really hard to bring Neil and all the other new players to the club and I'm very pleased with the business we have done.

'I'd be excited about the squad we have assembled for the Championship, never mind League One.'

Irvine worked with Mellor during his time as manager of the Deepdale club and will know his qualities well.

He follows Gary Teale, who signed a two-year deal at the club, to Wednesday today.
