Sheffield Wednesday have signed Nor thern Ireland youngster Paul McElroy on a one-year deal.

The left winger, who can also play at left-back, will sign for the Owls on 1 July and is expected to form part of the club's development squad next season.

He told the club's official website: "I played in a couple of trial games if you like earlier this year and thankfully did well.

"I was really impressed with the place and I already think I have a good feel for Sheffield Wednesday.

"I'm a left winger primarily - that is my favourite position - but I have also played at left back.

"I want to get a good pre-season under the belt now and my aim is to play in the first team for Wednesday."

McElroy came through the youth ranks at Hull and signed a professional contract with the Premier League club last summer.
