It has been a busy week for Sheffield Wednesday as they have announced the arrival of three new coaches, and now they have signed defender Chey Dunkley.
The club announced the signing via Twitter as they posted a video of the player in the Owls kit and said: ‘Give a warm Wednesday welcome to Chey Dunkley!’
Many of the Owls fan base are reacting to this news and seem to be very happy about the transfer. The centre-back is at a good age to be signed as he is 28 and he has good experience in the Championship. He played 26 times in the division for Wigan last season, keeping seven clean sheets and averaging 3.9 clearances a game, per WhoScored.
Not only is it a good piece of business, but it is also an early signing and could be a statement of intent from the club that they are going to put up a strong battle in the Championship this season, something which is going to be tough as they currently have a 12 point deduction.
Here is what fans said following the news:
