FRANCIS Jeffers will make his Sheffield Wednesday debut against Ipswich Town on Saturday after agreeing a three-year-deal at Hillsborough.

The 26-year-old striker has agreed terms of around £10,000 a week to play for the Owls after a £700,000 move from Blackburn Rovers.

Jeffers turned down a move to Portman Road last month, despite being offered more than he was being paid at Ewood Park.

But after failing to accept personal terms with Town he held unsuccessful talks at Leicester City and Cardiff City, before settling on the Owls two days before the season starts.
