The Star understands the Owls have agreed a deal to sign the Australian international for an undisclosed fee. Luongo, who was left out of the R's opening-day victory at Stoke City, is pencilled in to undergo a medical this morning.

Midfield playmaker Luongo started his career at Premier League big boys Tottenham Hotspur. He enjoyed loan spells at Ipswich Town and Swindon Town (twice) before joining the Robins on a permanent basis in September 2013 in a £400,000 deal.

Luongo notched 13 goals in 85 Swindon appearances as he helped the club reach the League One play-off final in 2015. His impressive performances culminated in him being voted in the PFA League One team of the year.
