Owls snap up international goalkeeper

9 July 2015

Sheffield Wednesday have signed goalkeeper Lewis Price on a free transfer.

The shot-stopper, who was most recently with Premier League side Crystal Palace, has signed a one-year contract at Hillsborough.

Price rose through the youth ranks at Ipswich and made his debut for the Tractor Boys in April 2004.

Between 2003 and 2007, Price made 75 appearances for Ipswich and also enjoyed a brief loan spell with Cambridge in 2004.

Derby moved for the services of the Bournemouth-born custodian in July 2007 and during his three years at Pride Park, he enjoyed three further loan spells, at MK Dons, Luton and Brentford.

The Welsh international signed for then Championship club Palace in July 2010 and made a total of 16 appearances for the Eagles.

Price played an integral part of the Palace side that reached the League Cup semi finals in 2011/12 and featured in the club’s victories over Crawley, Wigan, Middlesbrough, Southampton and Manchester United along the way.

The 30-year-old was back on the move in 2014 and joined Mansfield on loan, posting five appearances for the Stags between April and May.

During the 2014/15 season, Price signed on loan for League 1 outfit Crawley, originally until January 2015, but after impressing at the Broadfield Stadium, he promptly extended until the end of the campaign.
