SHEFFIELD Wednesday today signed a second keeper in 24 hours when Arron Jameson agreed to stay.

He was out of contract this summer but has accepted a deal for the next two years.

It follows the coup of Chris Kirkland’s arrival from Wigan on a two-year contract.

Jameson, aged 22, said: “It’s an honour to be staying for another two years, and hopefully I can really push on in that time.

“I think I have progressed well. Obviously I haven’t played many games but it’s been a good learning curve for me.

“It’s really pleasing to be offered this new contract, because it shows I’m well thought of by the coaching staff, which is great, and hopefully I will be able to repay their faith in me.

“There are a lot of people at the club I can learn from.

“There is so much experience here. Nicky Weaver has played in the Premier League, as has Stephen Bywater. Andy Rhodes (goalkeeping coach) has made more than 500 appearances, and now we have Chris Kirkland, who has played in the Premier League and the Champions League, so I’m surrounded by talent.”
