Sheffield Wednesday have completed the signing of striker Fernando Forestieri from Watford for an undisclosed fee.

Forestieri has signed a four-year deal after the switch, believed to be for a fee of £3million.

The former Italy U21 international has scored 18 goals in 76 appearances since joining Watford on a permanent deal in January 2013.

The forward was given a tour of Hillsborough by chairman Dejphon Chansiri before the Owls' clash with Middlesbrough.

Forestieri's was the second deal done between Wednesday and Watford after the Owls signed defender Daniel Pudil on a season-long loan on Saturday morning.

Forestieri had looked close to joining Leeds United only for the move to collapse late on. Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino claimed the 25-year-old did not have the right mentality for his club.
