Owls Chase Aston Villa's Lowry
Wednesday are one of a number of clubs chasing the loan services of young Aston Villa defender Shane Lowry, according to reports today.
The centre-back will be sent out on loan by the Barclays Premier League club to gain some first-team experience, with Hillsborough a possible destination.
Owls boss Alan Irvine has already been linked with a swoop for the 21-year-old this season.
And with money now available to spend on wages, Wednesday could look to snap-up Lowry on a season-long loan as Irvine looks to bolster his squad for a promotion push.
The Wednesday boss has highlighted his team's defence as the main area in need of improvement, and Plymouth Argyle defender Reda Johnson is set to open talks over a move to Hillsborough.
Leicester City's Michael Morrison has also been tipped for a move to Wednesday.
A number of Championship and League One side are said to be tracking the highly-rated Lowry in the January transfer window.
Lowry has already enjoyed loan spells away from Villa Park with Leeds United and Plymouth Argyle.
