Sheffield Wednesday are set to announce a deal to bring Sam Hutchinson to the club, according to Football Insider.
The deal will see the 31-year-old join the club on a short-term deal until the end of the season.
Hutchinson is a familiar face at Hillsborough having spent six years from the club after joining the club in 2014.
A product of Chelsea’s youth system, the midfielder made over 150 appearances for the South Yorkshire side before leaving the club last summer at the end of his contract.
Since leaving the club Hutchinson has been playing for Cypriot side Pafos, however the versatile star was limited to just five appearances before having his contract terminated.
Football Insider revealed over the weekend that the former England youth international was due to undergo a medical with the club, however they’re now reporting that a deal is on the cusp of being announced.
A deal to sign Hutchinson will be the Owls’ second signing of the January transfer window following the move to bring free agent Andre Green to the club.
