Sheffield Wednesday have this evening signed Welsh international goalkeeper Lewis Price.

The 30-year-old arrives at Hillsborough on a free transfer after leaving Premier League side Crystal Palace, and signs a one-year deal.

Price began his career at Ipswich and made 75 appearances for the Tractor Boys, before signing for Palace in 2010 and playing 16 times.

Price has enjoyed loan spells at Cambridge, MK Dons, Luton and Brentford, and played five times for Mansfield on loan last year.

He also impressed on loan at League One side Crawley Town last season and signs for Wednesday after Chris Kirkland decided not to extend his stay at Hillsborough.

Carlos Carvalhal was this afternoon unveiled as Wednesday manager, addressing the Press for the first time since replacing Stuart Gray.

Reports in Spain, meanwhile, suggest Celta Vigo’s Álex López will the next player to join Wednesday.

An article on the Spanish club’s website says López will move to Hillsborough on loan, subject to a medical, and the player used his Twitter account to confirm the news.

“The youth, who came to the club to play in the reserves in the 2009/2010 campaign, has agreed a loan spell at English club Sheffield Wednesday, in the Football League Championship, following the agreement reached by the parties, subject to a medical examination,” a Celta statement read.

“Celta wishes Álex much success during his time at the English side.”
