Npower League One giants Sheffield Wednesday have completed a second raid on Bury this season, as winger Mike Jones today joined the club on a two-and-a-half year deal, following Ryan Lowe's move in the summer.

The 24-year-old winger joins for an undisclosed fee and becomes the Owls third signing of the current transfer window, alongside Stephen Bywater and Miguel Llera.

Wednesday fans can expect big things from the tricky winger from Merseyside, who began his career with hometown club Tranmere Rovers.

After departing the Birkenhead-based club in 2008, Jones' hit form for the Shakers, making 145 appearances for the club and taking his career goal tally to an impressive 24 goals from the wide position.

It's understood that Jones was offered a new improved deal at Gigg Lane, but Wednesday got their man after triggering a release clause in his contract by meeting the requested figure in full.

The wingers manager at Bury; Richie Barker, said recently: "The only reason I would expect Mike to leave is to go and play at a higher level - at either one of the big clubs in this division or in the Championship."

Indeed, Wednesday certainly consider themselves as one of League One's big hitters, and Gary Megson will be hoping to reward Jones with his home debut in the weekend game with Charlton Athletic.
