Sheffield Wednesday have announced the signing of Norwich defender Michael Turner on a season-long loan.

Turner has struggled to tie down a first-team spot recently at Carrow Road with Sebastien Bassong and Russell Martin forming a partnership at the back and spent time out on loan at Fulham last season.

The centre-half began his career at Charlton but did not make a first-team appearance for the Addicks and spent two seasons at Brentford before moving to Hull in 2006.

The 31-year-old came to prominence in East Yorkshire, helping City gain promotion to the top flight and spending a season in the Premier League with the Tigers before sealing a move to Sunderland.

Turner spent three years on Wearside and joined the Canaries for an undisclosed fee in 2012.

He will now add to the central defensive corps at Hillsborough alongside Owls captain Glenn Loovens, Tom Lees, Vincent Sasso and Darryl Lachman.
