Everton loanee Aiden McGeady is tipped to add extra magic to the Owls squad, according to Barry Bannan.
The tricky winger made his debut from the bench late in the 1-1 draw with Burnley on Tuesday evening.
Bannan says his arrival at Hillsborough will add an extra element of danger to the team.
“Aiden is a bit similar to Gary Hooper in terms of having that little bit of extra magic which can win you games,” Bannan said.
“He has not played a lot of games but once he gets up to the speed of things I think he will be a real danger in our team.
“It’s a big, big signing for us. Aiden has obviously come from a top team in the Premier League. He has got great pedigree.
“The competition will keep everyone on their toes and shows that we are really giving it a go this season.”
