Through their official website, EFL League One club Sheffield Wednesday have announced the capture of Liverpool academy product of Nigerian descent Michael Ihiekwe.

 

Ihiekwe will complete his move to the Owls on July 1 upon the expiry of his contract with Championship newcomers Rotherham United.

Ihiekwe had a banner season at Rotherham United, helping them seal promotion to the second tier and was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year this summer.

 

He is departing Rotherham United after playing 184 matches across five seasons, scoring fourteen goals and registering eleven assists.

 

On his curriculum vitae, the central defender has also worn the colours of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Cheltenham Town, Tranmere Rovers and Accrington Stanley in the past.

 

Ihiekwe links up with former Nigeria U23 invitee Domnic Iorfa, ex-Flying Eagles invitee Fisayo Dele-Bashiru and former Everton midfielder Dennis Adeniran at Sheffield Wednesday.
