Wilson returns to Owls as manager
Danny Wilson returns to the Premiership side as manager
Danny Wilson has been confirmed as the new manager of Sheffield Wednesday after quitting Barnsley.
The former Northern Ireland international will return to the Premiership club where he spent three years as a player.
The announcement that Wilson had left Barnsley, who were relegated from the top flight in May, was made at a press conference at Oakwell on Monday.
An hour later Sheffield Wednesday confirmed 38-year-old Wilson as their manager.
Wednesday were linked with former Hillsborough favourite Wilson after Ron Atkinson's contract was not renewed at the end of the season.
Last week the Owls agreed a deal with former Rangers boss Walter Smith, but he joined Everton.
After Barnsley were relegated from the Premiership, Wilson initially pledged his future to the Oakwell club.
John Hendrie is the most experienced player at the club since the departure of Neil Redfearn to Charlton for £1m.
Hendrie, 34, takes his first steps into management after playing a bit part in the Tykes first season in the top flight under Wilson.
His playing career includes three seasons at Coventry, captaining Bradford, playing at Newcastle, Leeds and Middlesbrough before signing for Barnsley in 1996 for £250,000.
