Coughlan Makes Clarets Switch

Wednesday defender Graham Coughlan has completed a loan move to Championship strugglers Burnley today in a deal which will keep him at Turf Moor until the end of the season.

Clarets boss Steve Cotterill attended Hillsborough on Tuesday night to see Coughlan in action against Leeds, in which the Irishman scored in a comfortable 3-0 victory and impressed the former Sunderland gaffer enough to warrant a loan move.

And Coughlan went to train with the Lancashire club yesterday before putting pen to paper on a loan deal until the end of the season as Cotterill bolsters his struggling side ahead of the Championship climax.

Owls boss Brian Laws said: "Graham wants to play games and so he's going to Burnley for the remainder of the season."

The former Plymouth Argyle centre-back has been on compassionate leave over the last few weeks following the death of his younger brother - but hasn't been a first-team figure at S6 since the arrival of Brian Laws.

Coughlan has featured just eight times for the Owls since the sacking of Paul Sturrock - and with the Owls boss rating youngster Richard Wood so highly since his return from injury, it was likely Cocko would be nothing more than a bench warmer for the remainder of the season.

The deal will include a 24-hour recall clause should Wednesday require Coughlan's services in case of injuries or suspensions. And it's expected the 32-year-old will be allowed to leave S6 come the end of the season.

Is he any good then? How do the Owls fans rate him. Was Laws right to drop him?
turfmanphil
He's not getting any younger but he's the kind of player who will give you 110% every match no matter what. Good to have if you're battling against the drop! He's a top bloke and has been a good servant to us but we need someone better if we want to improve.
welshyowl
yeah he's a good leader and a solid defender but not one for promotion, just his time to move on i think, and all the best to him i say.

Shame to see him go, but no room for sentiment, we have to move on, and buy a younger faster centre half to replace bougherra
