Versatile star Hutchinson, who can play in defence or midfield, is available on a free transfer after leaving Chelsea earlier this summer.

The 24-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell at Wednesday last season and Owls boss Stuart Gray had made Hutchinson one of his top targets this summer.

A number of Premier League and Championship sides are thought to have sounded out Hutchinson about a move, but the player is happy to return to Hillsborough.

Hutchinson, who came through the ranks at Chelsea, is set to become Wednesday's second new signing in the last two days following the arrival of former Sunderland goalkeeper Keiren Westwood on a free transfer.
