Sunderland midfielder Will Buckley has joined Sky Bet Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan.
The 26-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Birmingham, is eligible to feature on Sunday as Wednesday host Aston Villa in their Championship curtain raiser.
Buckley started his career at Rochdale and scored 13 goals from 42 appearances for the League Two side, earning him a move to Watford in January 2010.
He joined Brighton 18 months later, making 64 league starts for the Seagulls before joining Premier League Sunderland two years ago.
Buckley has featured on 24 occasions for the Black Cats in all competitions, during which time he has also spent time out on loan to Leeds.
