Sheffield Wednesday have captured left-back Rhoys Wiggins from fellow Championship rivals Charlton Athletic, with the defender signing a three-year deal, the Owls confirmed on their official website.
Wiggins now joins up with Carlos Calvahal’s squad ahead of the season opener on the 8th August where Sheffield Wednesday host Bristol City on the opening day.
The 27-year-old has a bundle of Championship experience that he can bring to the team having made 128 appearances for Charlton since signing for the club in 2011.
Wiggins, who will wear the number 16 shirt, joins a long list of new recruits for Wednesday, who have been active in the market in an attempt for promotion under new owners.
Wiggins will undoubtedly bolster Wednesday’s defensive options ahead of the new signing, as they battle for a top six position in the 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship.
