The Scot spent last season on loan with French club Marseille, however did not do enough to impress the Ligue 1 side enough to convince them to make a permanent move.

Owls manager Carlos Carvalhal is keen to add to his squad after they narrowly missed out on promotion last term, going to down to Mo Diame’s winner in the play off final.

Fletcher will join the Owls immediately and link up with his teammates ahead of pre season.
