Barry Bannan: Has joined Sheffield Wednesday from Crystal Palace

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Scotland midfielder Barry Bannan from Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee on a one-year contract.

The 25-year-old midfielder becomes Wednesday’s 15th signing of the transfer window. He follows Norwich’s Michael Turner and Watford pair Daniel Pudil and Fernando Forestieri through the entrance door at Hillsborough over the last week.

Bannan was signed by former Palace boss Ian Holloway from Aston Villa in 2013, having previously played under him at Blackpool.

Bannan told social media: “I would like to thanks the Palace fans for their unreal support and loved every minute there and to my team-mates won’t be forgotten.

“Glad to have joined Wednesday…glad to be going somewhere to play regular football and a fresh start.”

The 25-year-old has played 20 times for Scotland but had not featured for Palace this season.
