Wycombe Wanderers have confirmed the signing of former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Tyreeq Bakinson on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old arrives at Adams Park following his exit from the Owls after two years in Yorkshire.

He also spent the latter half of the previous season on loan at Charlton Athletic, scoring once in 15 games.

Coincidentally, his last game for the Addicks happened to be at Wycombe on the final day of the 2023/24 campaign.

Bakinson has become the club’s fifth summer signing, following the arrivals of Nathan Bishop from Sunderland [on loan), Jaoden Bartolo from Wealdstone, Alex Hatridge from Exeter City, Jack Matton from Woking and Brody Peart from Brighton and Hove Albion respectively.

The latter was announced minutes before a Chairboys XI took on Aylesbury United on June 28, which finished 3-3.

Wycombe, at one stage, were 3-0 down.

Speaking on the signing of Bakinson, manager Matt Bloomfield told the club’s website: “We’ve been big admirers of Tyreeq for a long time and we’re delighted that he’s chosen to come here, having had interest from elsewhere as well.

“He’s a player with a lot of ability on the ball but his size and presence in the middle of the park will really complement the talents we’ve already got in that area.

“Tyreeq will suit the way we want to play and he fits the profile of the type of player we want to have in the squad, so we’re excited to see what he can do for us and I think the fans will love seeing him out there on the pitch.”

The central midfielder began his career at Luton Town but played just six first-team matches between 2015 and 2017.

A move to Bristol City followed, but he spent his first two years as a Robin away on loan.

During the 2017/18 year, he played 42 times and scored one goal for Notts County in League Two.

He remained in the fourth tier for the following season [2018/19], but this time at Plymouth Argyle, where he scored twice in 14 matches.

Bakinson did not play a single minute of football during the 2019/20 season, before becoming a first-team regular for Bristol City a year later.

In all, he featured 39 times and bagged four strikes during the 2020/21 campaign, which included scoring a stunning goal against Wycombe.

This was in April 2021 as Wanderers defeated City 2-1 at Adams Park.

The goal was regarded as one of the best in the Championship that season, but the fixture is best remembered for Wycombe legend Adebayo Akinfenwa scoring his first and only second-tier goal.

This occurred in the final minute of injury time to give the Chairboys the three points.

A loan move to Ipswich Town followed a year later where he scored two goals in 17 matches, before a permanent switch to Sheffield Wednesday took place in the summer of 2022.

It’s fair to say that the midfielder struggled in Yorkshire, playing just 42 times in 18-months, as he spent the final stint of his Owls contract at Charlton last season.

His move to Adams Park is subject to EFL and FA approval.
