Sheffield Wednesday have completed the signing of striker Lucas Joao from Nacional for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old Angolan has signed a four-year deal and follows former Nacional forward Marco Matias to Hillsborough.

The Star understands the fee is in the region of £2million, after an initial bid from the Owls was turned down on Monday.

Joao arrived in Portugal with Beira Mar Atletico Clube Almada before signing for Nacional in 2011.

Following a loan spell with third tier outfit Mirandela, Joao went on to net eight goals in 57 appearances for Nacional.

He started 24 games in the Portuguese top flight last season and made 38 appearances in total, scoring seven goals.
