Jon Otsemobor to make Sheffield Wednesday switch

Sheffield Wednesday have agreed to sign full-back Jon Otsemobor following his release by Southampton.

The 27-year-old has agreed a two-year deal at Hillsborough and will officially join the Owls on 1 July.

Otsemobor told the club website: "It goes without saying they [Wednesday] are one of, if not the biggest, club in the division.

"The most important thing for this club is to get out of this division as soon as possible."

Otsemobor started his career at Liverpool and had loan spells at Hull, Bolton and Crewe before permanent moves to Rotherham, Crewe, Norwich and then the Saints.

Boss Alan Irvine said: "I've known about Jon for a long time, since he was a youth team player at Liverpool.

"He's a good athlete, quick, strong and knows what it's like to be at a big club having spent his early years at Liverpool and then going on to play for the likes of Norwich and Southampton. He certainly ticks a lot of boxes."

Otsemobor is Wednesday's second signing in two days, following the arrival of Chris Sedgwick from Preston.
