Sheffield Wednesday's new signing Keiren Westwood faces stiff competition for the number one jersey after Chris Kirkland put pen to paper on a new one-year contract.

Kirkland, 33, a regular for the Owls since his move from Wigan in May 2012, looked set to leave Hillsborough as he stalled over signing a fresh deal.

But the former England and Liverpool goalkeeper's future has now been resolved and he will be joined in pre-season by Westwood, who signed for Wednesday on a two-year contract on Monday evening.
