Byers - who will wear the No 14 shirt - was on loan at Portsmouth last season, and bagged 65 appearances for the Swans.

The Owls have not paid a transfer fee for Byers - their ninth signing of the summer - but the deal includes a sell-on clause.

Wednesday kick-off life in League One with a trip to Charlton Athletic on Saturday.
