Sheffield Wednesday announce signing of former Tottenham Hotspur and Huddersfield Town man
Sheffield Wednesday have sealed their fourth signing of the summer, in doing so filling a hole in what was a problem position.
Former Huddersfield Town left-back Jaden Brown has joined the club on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract in West Yorkshire earlier this summer.
Brown, just 22, is a former England youth international having represented them at every level from under-16s to under-19s.
He achieved those caps as a highly-rated prospect at Tottenham Hotspur who moved him on to the Terriers in 2019 before he spent some time out on loan at Exeter City.
The youngster joins Dennis Adeniran and Olamide Shodipo as new faces in the first team squad, with David Agbontohoma joining the under-23 set-up at Middlewood Road.
He could well find himself in line to make his senior Owls debut against his former club, with Huddersfield set to take on Wednesday in a curtain-raising Carabao Cup clash at Hillsborough on August 1.
In a short statement on their website, Wednesday said: “The Owls are delighted to announce our latest summer signing as Jaden Brown checks in at Hillsborough.
“The left-sided defender joins Wednesday having departed his previous club Huddersfield, against whom we kick off the new season in the Carabao Cup.
“Brown graduated from the Tottenham Hotspur academy and moved north to the Terriers in 2019.
“He posted 28 appearances for Huddersfield after returning from a loan spell with Exeter.
“The 22-year-old has represented England at various levels on the international stage, from the Under-16s through to the Under-19s.
“Welcome to Wednesday, Jaden!”
