Jimmy Jimmy!

Jimmy Jimmy!

As expected, attacking midfielder Jimmy Smith is set to become Brian Laws first loan signing of the close season on Thursday.

At Chelsea since the age of nine, the youngster has Championship experience with Norwich and QPR, and will sign for Wednesday in a deal which runs until January 10th.

Brian Laws told the official site: 'Laws said: 'I'm really pleased to be getting the services of Jimmy Smith on board. He's a high-energy player with an abundance of natural talent and I'm extremely confident he can make a difference to our midfield.'

Smith is a former England Under 19 international and made 31 appearances for the R's and nine for the Canaries, and was top scorer for Chelsea reserves two seasons ago.

The Owls' engine room is looking a whole lot healthier following the acquisition of James O'Connor and now Smith, complementing the drive and enthusiasm of Sean McAllister.

I think O'connor will do well for us, Jimmy smith played 31 games in an ever imrpoving QPR side last year, plus he wouldnt be at Chelsea if he wasnt decent. With Mcallister keeping them honest to get a place I have to agree with WIEH, looks far better than last season already

quality young player, but dont think he is the type of player that is going to save you from relegation. you could do with a few old heads coming in as you have generally a team of muppet babies
