Will Buckley joins Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Sunderland winger Will Buckley on a season-long loan.

Buckley, 26, has been a peripheral figure at the Stadium of Light for the majority of his two years at the club and did not feature last season.

Instead he had loan spells at Leeds and Birmingham in the Sky Bet Championship, where he will return to link up with the Owls.

Wednesday have confirmed he will be available for Sunday's season opener against Aston Villa on Sunday and will wear number 38.

Buckley made his name with Brighton, scoring 19 goals in 64 league starts before following former Seagulls boss Gus Poyet to Wearside in a £2.5million deal.
