George Byers sends first message to Sheffield Wednesday fans after sealing switch from Swansea City

Sheffield Wednesday new boy George Byers has extended an excitable message to the club’s fans after his signing from Swansea City was confirmed.

Tuesday, 3rd August 2021, 6:54 pm

The 25-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the South Yorkshire club and there will be no immediate fee paid to the Swans, though the Welsh club confirmed an undisclosed sell-on fee in Byers’ deal.

The midfielder joins a hotly-contested battle for minutes in the Owls midfield and became their ninth senior signing of the summer after Dennis Adeniran, Olamide Shodipo, Jaden Brown, Jack Hunt, Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Lewis Wing, Florian Kamberi and Theo Corbeanu.

In a short note to Wednesdayites, Byers wrote on Twitter: “New chapter. Unbelievable feeling to sign for this massive football club. Can’t wait to play at Hillsborough again! Super excited to see where this journey goes. Let’s Go.”
