Varney Set For Owls Return

Varney Set For Owls Return

Derby County striker Luke Varney is set to return to Wednesday on a one-month loan deal today according to media reports.

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has been actively searching for new attacking options to bolster his squad, and it seems for the former Crewe man is his man.

Varney, who enjoyed a short loan stint in the blue and white stripes last season, is expected to join the Owls on an initial one-month loan, with a loan extension a possibility thereafter.

Laws was said to be chasing Arsenal youngster Jay Simpson, but it could be that he's given up on the Gunner to turn his attentions to Varney, who made a good impression on the Hillsborough faithful last time out.

The 26-year-old has failed to start a match at Derby after falling down the pecking order under boss Nigel Clough, making just one appearances on the Rams' substitutes bench.

I'd be quite happy with this. i liked the look of him before. i'd like to see him on a permanent deal alongside sodje, but getting a fit sodje seems like a distant dream at the moment.

Good news - liked him last time and would have fancied keeping him a bit longer. Get rid of Jeffers and get him signed up for the season and see what he can do

He looked good to me. Has a bit of pace and drive and he lead the line well. He would help right now, as we are desperate or a cutting edge up front.

Doubt whether Varney was the striker that Laws was originally after because I think Varney would have said yes straight away. That said, very pleased with this signing as he did OK for us last time.

Very happy with this. I'd be even happier if the loan was extended or possibly even turned into a permanent deal.

that definatly wasnt laws first choice of a loan striker, because he said hed had permission from a premiership club to talk to the player. if it is varney id be quite pleased but he has fell down pecking order at derby an they arnt exactly a promotion team. but maybe this is chance he needs to prove him self.

As I recall he scored once when he was with us last. Not exactly Kenwyne Jones territory but better than Jeffers. Feeling decidedly underwhelmed but we need someone, every time we went forward at Newcastle our lack of a cutting edge was only too evident.
