Sheffield Wednesday have completed the permanent signing of on-loan Stoke defender Lewis Buxton for a nominal fee.

The 25-year-old, whose contract at the Britannia Stadium was due to expire in the summer, has signed a contract until 2011 and will be available for the Championship clash at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

The versatile Buxton, who can play at full-back or in central defence, has made 16 appearances for the Owls since arriving at Hillsborough on loan in mid-October and played the final game of his three-month stay in last week's win over Charlton.

Manager Brian Laws said: "Lewis showed a tremendous attitude and really impressed me during his loan spell, on and off the pitch.

"He's a versatile player, he slotted into a number of positions very well and has earned the chance to come here on a full transfer. Lewis is an excellent addition to our squad."
