Sheffield Wednesday have signed former Aston Villa winger Andre Green, the Sky Bet Championship club have announced.

The 22-year-old, who was a free agent after leaving Villa Park last summer, becomes Wednesday’s first arrival of the transfer window.

He scored twice in 48 appearances for Villa after graduating from the club’s academy and also spent time on loan at Portsmouth, Preston and Charlton.

The length of his contract at Hillsborough has not been announced by the Owls.

Wednesday, who sit 21st in the Championship, are currently under the caretaker management of Neil Thompson following last month’s sacking of Tony Pulis.

The South Yorkshire club’s next two matches – against Coventry and Wycombe – have been postponed following a Covid-19 outbreak.
