Sheffield Wednesday have completed the signing of defender Michael Morrison from Leicester City for an undisclosed fee.

Morrison, 22, has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract and is the second player to arrive during the transfer window after Reda Johnson.

He will go straight into the Owls' squad for their FA Cup clash at Bristol City.

Manager Alan Irvine said: "He's a player I've known for a long time. He's a good age at 22 and has a lot of experience for a young player.

"Michael has played mainly as a centre-back but also at right-back. He's a good defender, who attacks the ball well, he's aggressive and mobile and a player who has excellent all-round potential."

Morrison started his career with Cambridge United in 2005, making his reserve-team debut aged just 15 - a club record - before joining Leicester in 2008 and playing a key role in the Foxes' promotion from League One.
