SHEFFIELD Wednesday today announced the signing of Blackpool defender Miguel Llera.
He has signed a contract that runs to the summer of next year.
The centre half’s Bloomfield Road deal was due to expire this summer but he has been released by the Seasiders after his successful loan spell with the Owls.
Gary Megson was keen to sign him in view of his form when captain Rob Jones was out of the side.
The team won all three games that the Spanish centre half started.
He cannot play for Wednesday in the FA Cup fourth round at Blackpool because he is ineligible through having played for Brentford in the competition this season.
The 32-year-old signed for the Owls on loan in November, and his stay ended after the 2-1 win against Tranmere on January 2.
