Wednesday confirm Bennett capture
Wednesday have this morning confirmed the signing of out-of-contract Nottingham Forest defender Julian Bennett.
As revealed on Vital Wednesday earlier, Bennett becomes the Owls' third signing of the summer after David Prutton and Rob Jones and has penned a two-year contract at Hillsborough.
The 26-year-old left-back is no stranger to Owls boss Gary Megson, who signed Bennett while he was manager at the City Ground.
Bennett told the official SWFC site: 'It's fantastic to be here and I am looking forward to the challenge.
'When a club like Sheffield Wednesday shows interest in you, it doesn't take too much thinking about.'
He came through the Forest Academy before moving across the Midlands for a spell with the Saddlers before returning to help Forest to promotion from League 1 and picking up the club's player of the season award along the way.
Bennett comes in to replace left-back Tommy Spurr, who left for Doncaster Rovers.
