CRYSTAL Palace trialist striker Atdhe Nuhiu has signed for Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon, subject to clearance from the FA, Football League and FIFA. Nuhiu, who played for Palace in their pre-season friendly wins at Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham recently, has agreed a three-year contract at Hillsborough. The big striker has told Sheffield Wednesday's official club website this afternoon: "I have had interest from Sheffield Wednesday for some time but as a professional footballer, you talk to other clubs, this is natural. "But this club always felt right for me, it feels comfortable and I am very happy to be here. "I am a typical box player and if I get the service I can score the goals. "Sheffield Wednesday is a strong name throughout Europe and I am looking forward to starting training and playing with my new club." It is believed Palace boss Ian Holloway was a fan of the targetman, who show his strength and aerial ability against the Daggers and Gills, but it seems his attentions are set for elsewhere. Holloway admitted on Tuesday he had looked at "60-odd strikers" so far this summer, making offers for "almost 40 of them". And a one-year deal for Carlton Cole has been scuppered after the striker told the Eagles his wage demands.
