Owls complete Bywater loan deal

Owls complete Bywater loan deal

Wednesday have completed a deal to sign Derby County goalkeeper Stephen Bywater on an emergency loan deal.

Bywater has penned a deal at Hillsborough which will keep him at the club up to and including Saturday, December 17.

His arrival plugs the gap left by the injured Nicky Weaver, who is expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks through a knee injury.

The 30-year-old spent the end of last season on-loan at Cardiff City and he's expected to take the place of Richard O'Donnell, who has been in goal for Wednesday since the injury to Weaver.

Bywater will wear the number 43 shirt for the Owls and is expected to make his debut in Saturday's home clash against Exeter City at Hillsborough.

I'm encouraged by this. Whether O'Donnell should be criticised for any of the goals we've conceded of late is immaterial. The fact is we've lost our first choice keeper through injury and GM has responded accordingly. Personally, I'd prefer to see Bywater on the bench come Saturday but it's the manager's call and he knows best!

he's a good keeper, maybe time to give him o'donnell a few off. bywater is a very strong leader from the back

I don't rate Bywater at all and don't think its an accident that hes slid down the pecking order. Would also prefer to see O Donell in there.

On Radio Sheffield GM said - and I'm paraphrasing - He was looking to bring in an experienced 'keeper to work with the 2 young keepers in training to add to there education, He almost said that he would have littel intention of actually playing them??
