Sheffield Wednesday have signed Manchester City academy midfielder Fisayo Dele-Bashiru.

The 19-year-old has become the Owls’ first recruit of the summer and admitted he completed the switch in search of first-team football.

“I’m honoured to sign for Sheffield Wednesday and I’m excited to be here,” Dele-Bashiru told Wednesday’s official club website.

“I’m at an age now where I want to be playing first-team football. I am confident it will fall into place for me here.

“I know there are other players in the same position but competition for places is a positive.

“My game is about power, strength and pace; I like to go box-to-box and I like taking on a shot too.

“The manager has shown a desire to bring me to the club and that means a lot.”
