Owls Sign Sam

Owls Sign Sam

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has secured the services of young Charlton Athletic midfielder Lloyd Sam on a one-month loan deal today.

Sturrock has been desperate to add to his attacking options after the current injury crisis at Hillsborough saw no fit strikers make the trip to Plymouth Argyle at the weekend.

And although the Charlton youngster isn't an out and out striker, boss Paul Sturrock believes he will be a valuable addition to the Owls squad.

Sturrock told the SWFC website: 'Supporters might be surprised that he's not an out-and-out centre forward but he's a very offensive player who can play wide-left, wide-right or up front. I just feel that, with the two-week break, Deon Burton and Barry Corr will be back very soon.'

He continued: 'We need pace down the sides of the team, although I haven't ruled out playing him at centre-forward either.'

Sam has joined the club until September 23 and can play in the Owls five league games until then. But the winger won't be allowed to feature in the Owls' League Cup match against Wrexham tonight.

The 22-year-old told the Charlton website: 'Sheffield Wednesday is a big club but I'm confident I can go up there and do well. I've had a good pre-season and I feel fit so we'll see what happens. It is my long-term aim to get into the Charlton first team but I know I need to get more experience and this is the perfect chance for me to do that.'

Sam is likely to be included in the Owls squad to face Leeds United this Bank Holiday Sunday - like on Sky.
