Lee Grant, 39, has been at Manchester United since 2018, acting as a homegrown back-up stopper and dipping his toe into academy coaching.
He played 145 times for Wednesday across three years – the most he achieved in a single stint with one club in his hugely successful career – and held the number one jersey at Hillsborough between 2007 and 2010.
In a statement on the United website, Grant paid testament to each of the clubs he had played for, including the Owls.
“I’m thankful to each and every club for what they have given to me, each one has shaped me into who I am. The relationship with the supporters of these great clubs will always be one of my most treasured memories.
“Fulfilling a boyhood dream of playing for Manchester United was something I thought was out of reach, so to have achieved that fills me with great pride and emotion!
“Although I haven’t played as many games in the last four years, I’ve given everything to the group every single day on the training pitch and in the dressing room.
“As I move into the next stage of my career, I’m excited and hungry about the beginning of a new journey and the hard work that lies ahead!”
