Owls snap up Windass
Windass is looking forward to working with Yorath again
Windass says Wednesday are still a big club
Sheffield Wednesday have completed the signing of Middlesbrough striker Dean Windass on a one-month loan deal.

The 32-year-old, who has scored more than 100 league goals in English and Scottish football, has failed to hold down a regular place at the Riverside after joining from Bradford in March.

Owls boss Terry Yorath was pleased to be reunited with Windass, who he coached during his time at Valley Parade.

He told the club's official website: "I'm delighted Dean has chosen to join us. He is a versatile player who will strengthen my attacking options."

Yorath moved for Windass after confirming the club would not be offering former Celtic star Tommy Johnson a new contract.

Windass will be eligible to play in six league games for Wednesday before his loan deal expires.

"I've spoken to Terry and I did not even have to think about making the move," Windass told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"Sheffield Wednesday is still a big club. Everyone knows they have under-achieved in the last three of four years.

"But they beat Villa in the Worthington Cup and they cannot be a bad team if they have managed that."
