Owls sign Nike Academy midfielder

Sheffield Wednesday have signed 19-year-old midfielder Sean Clare.

Clare will join the Owls Development Squad after impressing during a trial period with the club.

He has signed a contract until 2017.

He was brought to Sheffield Wednesday’s attention during his time with the Nike Academy, who aim to find professional clubs for unassigned footballers under the age of 20.

Speaking to Access Wednesday, Clare said: “I am excited to be here.

“I am very pleased to have signed my first professional contract and the hard work for me starts now.

“My short term aim is to break into the first team and hopefully get a chance to play regular football.”

The attacking centre midfielder was pleased to be joining the Owls at this time, with the club looking to be promoted to the Premier League.

He added: “It’s a club that’s on the up.

“The first team is playing very well so I’m really looking forward to it.”
