Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to signing Lewis McGugan from Watford.

Sheffield Wednesday have delighted their fan base by completing the permanent signing of midfielder Lewis McGugan.

The Owls confirmed the transfer via their official website, having loaned McGugan in from Watford last season.

There had been some doubt as to whether Wednesday and Watford would reach an agreement, with a change in club management also complicating the situation at both ends, and McGugan even featured in a pre-season friendly for the Hornets last week.

With Watford busy making signings themselves, McGugan was surplus to requirements and he has signed a three-year contract with Sheffield Wednesday.

The 26-year-old was a popular recruit last season, and is likely to look even better this coming campaign if he can gel alongside fellow new signings Marco Matias and Alex Lopez.

McGugan barely featured for Watford last season, and only really flourished after making his loan move, which was originally for a few weeks and later extended for the rest of the season.

The Owls were a side in need of creativity and McGugan brought that to the team, and could continue to do so for the next three years.
