Jake Kean: Goalkeeper also had spell at Blackburn

Sheffield Wednesday are poised to sign Norwich City goalkeeper Jake Kean on a free transfer, sources have told

Wednesday are in the market for a new goalkeeper after seeing Lewis Price leave Hillsborough for Rotherham earlier this summer.

Kean joined Norwich last summer from Blackburn Rovers, but he failed to make a single appearance for the Canaries with John Ruddy and Declan Rudd ahead of him in the pecking order.

The 25-year-old started his career at Derby County, coming through the Rams’ youth academy before joining Blackburn at the end of the 2008-09 season.

He spent six years at Ewood Park, enjoying loan spells at the likes of Rochdale, Yeovil Town and Oldham Athletic before moving to Norwich on a two-year deal.

Kean will provide cover and competition for No.1 keeper Kieren Westwood and Joe Wildsmith next season at Hillsborough as Wednesday look to mount another bid for promotion to the Premier League next season after losing to Hull City in the Play-Off final last term.
