Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed the signing of Crystal Palace right-back Jack Hunt on a permanent basis.

Hunt joins the Owls on a three and a half year deal, which will run until the end of the 2018/19 season.

The former Huddersfield Town man moved to Wednesday on loan in the summer and has impressed in his 22 appearances for the Hillsborough side.

Hunt moved to Crystal Palace in 2013 for a reported fee of £2 million, but struggled to settle. A long-term injury suffered shortly after his arrival hindered his ability to become a key part of the first team at Selhurst Park.

The 25-year-old also spent time on loan with Barnsley, Nottingham Forest and Rotherham United over the last two and a half seasons.
