Out-of-favour Wednesday defender Michael Morrison is close to completing a move to the Owls' League One promotion rivals Charlton Athletic.
Addicks boss Chris Powell, who worked with Morrison at Leicester City, has been chasing the 23-year-old throughout the close season and hopes to complete a deal in time for Charlton's friendly clash against Welling United tomorrow.
Morrison hasn't travelled to Austria with the rest of the Wednesday squad for a pre-season training camp and is understood to be having his medical at The Valley today.
Athletic have agreed a fee with Bournemouth for the services of Simon Francis, with Morrison coming in as his replacement.
The former Foxes man will be pleased his end his nightmare stay at S6. Former Owls boss Alan Irvine brought him to S6 in the January transfer window but he fell down the pecking order towards the end of the season following the appointment of Gary Megson.
Morrison arrived at Wednesday with a good reputation following a successful spell at Leicester but it was always going to be difficult to make a positive impressive in an Owls defence that leaked goals left, right and centre last term.
It was thought the defender may get the pre-season to prove himself for a place in the new-look Owls defence but Megson has looked elsewhere to bolster his back-four.
