Former Owls loan striker Nile Ranger has been jailed over online banking fraud.

Ranger, 25, who scored two goals in eight appearances in Sheffield Wednesday's promotion season back in 2012, was sentenced to eight months in prison.

The striker, who is currently contracted at Southend United, previously admitted conspiracy to defraud alongside Aseany Duncan, 19, from Enfield, North London.

It was the prosecution's case that Ranger conspired with persons unknown to defraud Diane Bloss, by obtaining her personal online banking details and transferring by way of an online transaction £2,090.23.

Ranger was also ordered to pay a £100 victim surcharge and £1,200 prosecution costs after appearing at Wood Green Crown Court in London.

Duncan was also jailed for eight months.
