Dave Jones is back in work.

Shefield Wednesday today appointed Dave Jones as their new manager.

City's former boss is being hailed as the man to take them to the Championship and then the Premier league.

"This is a fantastic football club and a fantastic challenge for me," said Jones.

"Promotion is the first ambition and from there is to try and get to the Holy Grail, which is the Premiership.

"I've had a lot of calls asking why I have dropped down to League One but I don't see it that way. I look at the size of the club and think this is a club that can go places.

"After talking to the chairman and seeing what he wanted and what his plans are, I had no hesitation in choosing here because it is a huge club that should not be where it is now."
