Owls sign David Jones

16 August 2016

Wednesday have signed David Jones from Premier League side Burnley for an undisclosed fee.

The 31-year-old joins with a rich pedigree having represented four teams in the Premier League – Derby, Wolves, Wigan and Burnley.

In addition, Jones has four second tier promotions under the belt – second only to strike star Kevin Phillips - and made 41 league appearances for the Clarets last season in their march to the Championship title.

Jones spent his formative years with Premier League giants Manchester United from the age of ten, and left just over a decade later after loan stints with Preston North End and Dutch side NEC Nijmegen.

A £1m move to Derby County followed and the midfield man helped the Rams win promotion to the top tier.

A successful move to Wolves came next, together with another promotion, before Jones switched to the top flight with Wigan.

The Southport product then signed for Burnley, with whom he has two Premier League promotions to his name.

In total, Jones has made 297 starts through his career to date. He will wear shirt number three for the Owls.
