Villa Starlet Lowry Linked With Owls

Villa Starlet Lowry Linked With Owls

Wednesday boss Alan Irvine is keen on bringing young Aston Villa defender Shane Lowry on loan to Hillsborough, according to reports today.

The Australian defender, 21, could make the switch from Villa Park to Hillsborough on a month's loan deal, according to The People newspaper.

Irvine has revealed his desire to bolster his defensive options following an ankle injury to Mark Beevers which will rule him out of action for around two months.

The Owls' defensive options weren't helped yesterday with the sending off of right-back Jon Otsemobor, which will now see him sidelined through suspension.

Former Charlton Athletic defender Sam Sodje has been training with Wednesday in the last week and is expected to become an Owl as soon as the current transfer embargo on the club is lifted.

And Lowry, highly rated at Villa, could follow him to Hillsborough if today's newspaper reports are to be believed.

Good signing for you lads. Played for Eire U21 but I am sure he has now pledged his International future to Australia and has been included in their full squad. Villa have loads of central defenders but this lad is good.

Yes, you land young Shane and he wont let you down. Left full back or in central defence, he'll do a very good job for you. Good Luck to you guys this season. Wont mean much to you, but I've always had a soft spot for The Owls, ever since I stood with your supporters at the Witton End (Villa Park) way back when (the sixties) for an F.A. Cup semi-final against Chelsea. You won 2-0.

need to get our hands of the money first. surely we must have a couple of young lads in the youth team or reserves we can throw in rather than borrow inexperienced players from another team. id rather see our youth develope rather than developing other clubs players.

just the sort of player we need, if he's willing to come to S6 he's got to be keen for football. feel a bit of passion goes a long way. Can't think who we have at the moment in youth/reserves who can step up at the minute

dezzy id imagine that the reason we dont play our youngsters is because they are a bit s**t. i think villas youths may have a bit more of an edge.

ozzietheowl, lets just fire our academy off then and concentrate on giving first team football to other clubs youngsters. Thanks for your efforts with the youth team sean, now on your bike. i personally am sick to death of players turning up for a month and sodding off. i still like to think we are a better club than some premier league's feeder club.
