Sheffield Wednesday completed the loan signing of Vitoria Setubal defender Frederico Venancio in August 2017.

The Portuguese centre back joined on a temporary basis until the end of the 2017/18 season, with a view to a permanent transfer.

The Setubal-born stopper rose through the ranks of his hometown club and broke into the senior squad in 2012/13.

With 134 appearances in total for Setubal, the 24-year-old had attracted significant interest from a host of potential suitors across Europe, including those from the Championship.

Venancio was a part of the Vitoria Setubal side who held the Owls to a 0-0 draw during the Albufeira friendly this summer.

The former Portuguese Under-21 international, who captained Vitoria for the past three campaigns, will take squad number 46.
