Steve Bruce: Sheffield Wednesday appoint new manager
Steve Bruce has been named as the new manager of Championship club Sheffield Wednesday.
Bruce will take charge from 1 February, with assistants Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence taking control until then.
Dutchman Jos Luhukay was dismissed by Wednesday on 21 December after less than a year in charge.
Bruce, 58, previously managed Wednesday’s local rivals Sheffield United, as well as fellow Yorkshire clubs Huddersfield Town and Hull City.
He guided Aston Villa to May’s Championship play-off final but was sacked in October.
The Owls were unbeaten in four games under caretaker manager Lee Bullen, a sequence which lifted Wednesday up to 16th in the Championship.
Bullen will remain part of the coaching team at Hillsborough.
