The former Rotherham United man has represented his country on seven occasions, and has plenty of experience in both the Championship and League One, playing over 120 games between the divisions over his career.

It’s understood that he turned down Championship approaches in favour of making the switch to S6, and he’ll be looking to hit the ground running as soon as possible.

Vaulks becomes the third signing of the summer for Wednesday after they snapped up centre back, Ben Heneghan, from AFC Wimbledon and David Stockdale of Wycombe Wanderers, and is also the third different position that they have bolstered since the transfer window opened.

Moore is still on the lookout for more new signings as we draw closer to the start of the 2022/23 season, and it’s almost certain that their latest acquisition won’t be their last.

Will Vaulks has signed for Sheffield Wednesday.

The midfield man could potentially report for his first training session as early as tomorrow, and he’ll be delighted to have got the deal done early so that he’s got plenty of time to settle into his new home.
