Sheffield Wednesday have signed Jordan Spence on an emergency loan from Premiership side West Ham United.
The versatile defender is eligible to play in the Owls’ Championship game with Middlesbrough at The Riverside Stadium on Saturday.
Spence joined the Hammers in 2004 as a youngster and has since risen through the ranks at Upton Park to post seven senior appearances to date.
He has also enjoyed loan spells with Bristol City, Scunthorpe United and Leyton Orient, making a total of 57 appearances along the way.
On the international stage, the Londoner has captained England at every youth level, from the Under-16s through to the Under-21s.
The 23-year-old began his career as a centre half but has more recently plied his trade in the right back berth.
Spence will wear shirt number 26 during his S6 stay.
