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.

4 CB's needed i reckon for a good squad, plus spurr can move inside if needed. i'd rather not go down the loan route, now the debts are cleared its about time we started thinking like a big club again and planned for the future.

Good player. Well worth you having IMO. Villa should be strong at centre back with Collins, Dunne, Cuellar and Clark plus Curtis Davies on loan at Leicester and another very promising young England defender Nathan Baker. I rate Lowry, but can't see him getting a look in at VP at the moment. I think he would be an excellent signing for you. Remember how well Gary Cahill did at Burnley on loan from Villa?
