Former Manchester United youth starlet signs for Sheffield Wednesday after Old Trafford departure last month

  • Di’Shon Bernard spent six years at Man United and played once for the first team
  • The defender had loan spells with Salford, Hull and most recently Portsmouth
  • Sheffield Wednesday say they beat off stiff competition to sign the player  

Sheffield Wednesday have signed defender Di’Shon Bernard following his departure from Manchester United.

Bernard spent six years at Old Trafford and made his debut for the Red Devils in a Europa League group-stage defeat against Astana in November 2019.

The 22-year-old Jamaica international had loan spells with Salford and Hull before being restored to first team training during the first half of the 2022-23 season under Erik ten Hag.

He didn’t do enough to break into the matchday squad and was sent out on loan to Portsmouth before becoming a free agent when his contract with United expired.

Bernard made 10 Pompey appearances last term and help Jamaica reach the CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-finals this summer.

The length of Bernard’s contract was not disclosed by the Owls.

The centre half becomes their fifth new recruit of the transfer window, following Reece James, Juan Delgado, Ashley Fletcher and Pol Valentin to Hillsborough. 

In their announcement Wednesday described the Wandsworth product as a cultured ball-playing central defender and said said they ‘beat off stiff competition for his signature’. 

Upon leaving United Bernard tweeted: ”although my time @manchesterunited has come to an end, I am nothing but proud of my journey so far with all the experiences and all the achievements I’ve accomplished along the way.

‘A big thank you to all the staff, teammates and anyone who has helped me on my journey.’
