Sheffield Wednesday have signed striker Mamady Sidibe on a 28-day emergency loan deal.
The powerful striker joins the Owls on a temporary deal from Premier League side Stoke City.
Mali international Sidibe first broke onto the scene in English football with Swansea in July 2001, scoring seven goals in 26 league starts before moving on to join, then second tier side, Gillingham the following summer.
The 32-year-old remained at the Priestfield Stadium for three years making 115 appearances and scoring 13 goals along the way before joining Stoke on a free transfer in summer 2005.
The towering striker has since made 186 appearances, of which 48 have come in the Premier League, for Tony Pulis’ side scoring 26 goals and played a key role in the club’s promotion to the top flight in 2007/08.
Sidibe is eligible to feature for the Owls against Leicester City this weekend and will wear shirt number 22 during his S6 stint.
