Owls snap up Maghoma

26 June 2013


Sheffield Wednesday have captured exciting winger Jacques Maghoma on a two-year deal.


The coveted 25-year-old has been linked with a host of clubs and will join the Owls on 1 July upon the expiry of his contract with Burton Albion.


Maghoma rose through the academy ranks with Premiership giants Spurs as a trainee before joining Burton in the summer of 2009.


He swiftly became a fans’ favourite with the Brewers and was a key performer as Burton reached the League 2 play-offs last season, claiming a hugely impressive 18 goals from the flanks.


Maghoma – who is also a full international with DR Congo – was duly named in the League 2 Football League Team of the Year of 2012/13 and also lifted Burton’s Players’ Player of the Year award.


The versatile and pacy wideman becomes Dave Jones’ first signing of the summer ahead of the new Championship campaign.


Maghoma said: “This is a massive move for me and having walked into the stadium, I can’t wait to get started.


“I really enjoyed my four years at Burton but the time is right for me to move onto the next stage of my career and this is it.


“I am a very ambitious player, I always work hard on my game from the left and from the right and I always want to improve.


“I am very confident I will do that at Sheffield Wednesday.”
