Owls first to fly through the transfer window

Sheffield Wednesday have wasted no time in bolstering their squad for the new year after completing the double signing of Rotherham striker Deon Burton and Derby's Marcus Tudgay.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has secured Burton, 29, on an 18-month contract for £110,000 while Tudgay, 22, has signed on a one-month loan deal with a view to a permanent move.

Both players will be available to face Crewe Alexandra at Hillsborough on Monday.

Sturrock told the club's official website: 'We've watched Deon several times this season and we know him from playing against him last season.

'He is a proven goalscorer, a penalty box player, who can also lead the line very well. He is a target man who holds the ball up.'

The Scot added: 'Marcus can play several positions up front and is a different type of player.

'We watched him last season, when he scored 10 goals, and he played very well against us at Hillsborough.'

Burton had arrived at Millmoor at the start of the season but handed in a transfer request prior to Christmas and Rotherham admit they had little choice but to let him go.

Chairman Peter Ruchniewicz said: 'Whilst we are obviously sorry to lose our leading scorer, we do not feel that we can stand in the way of players who clearly wish to be elsewhere.

'Everyone knows we are in a difficult financial situation and we have to look at all reasonable offers for our players.

'Sheffield Wednesday initially offered us an amount which fell well short of our valuation. Then, as everyone now knows, Deon submitted a written transfer request which we reluctantly agreed to accept.

'We have now negotiated a good deal for the club which gives us £110,000 up front.

'We are actively seeking a replacement for Deon and shortly hope to have some positive news about a replacement.'
