Sheffield Wednesday have signed Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez on an emergency loan deal.


The 21-year-old has joined the Owls for 28-days.


Martinez joined the Gunners’ academy in 2010 before being elevated to the first team squad at The Emirates one year later.


The highly-rated Argentine left North London in search of first team experience in the 2011/12 season, when he signed on loan for Oxford in League Two.


A regular for the Arsenal reserve side, Martinez has made two senior appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side, both coming in the 2012/13 campaign in the club’s Capital One Cup wins over Coventry and Reading.
