Michael Turner joins Sheffield Wednesday

27 August 2015

Norwich City defender pens season-long loan deal

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Premier League defender Michael Turner.

The towering talent joins the Owls on a season-long loan from Norwich City.

Turner is a vastly experienced operator and approaching his 400th league appearance through his career so far.

After rising through the ranks with Charlton Athletic, the 31-year-old enjoyed loan spells with Leyton Orient and Brentford – signing for the latter on a permanent basis prior to joining Hull City in July 2006.

A £4m move to Sunderland followed three years later before the stopper switched to Norwich on a Bosman free transfer in the summer of 2012.

Fulham recruited Turner on loan last season and he now heads north with Wednesday in time for the Owls’ home game in the Championship against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
