Gary Megson has snapped up Miguel Llera in a deal which will see the defender at S6 until the summer of 2013.
He could find himself facing his old team-mates at the end of the month, with the Owls travelling to Blackpool in the FA Cup fourth round. The tie has been confirmed for January 28 and tickets will be £10 for adults and £5 children, with on-sale details to be confirmed.
Meanwhile young keeper Sean Cuff has gone on a month’s loan to Blue Square Premier side Cambridge United.
* Sheff U moved above Wednesday into second place on Tuesday evening with a 4-0 home win over struggling Yeovil. They go a point clear but we have a game in hand.
