The Owls have signed Dutch forward Alessio Da Cruz on a loan deal to the end of the current campaign.

Da Cruz, a Netherlands Under-20 international, is eager to pull on the blue and white stripes and told swfc.co.uk:
“It has always been my dream to play in England and with this opportunity I am really happy.
“I am attracted by the fan base of Sheffield Wednesday, a big club in a big league and it will be a big test to see how far I have come as a player.
“I like to play second striker or winger, I am a creative player with pace. I am looking forward to meeting my team mates and staff
“I want to be involved straight away if possible and I am ready to play.”
Da Cruz will wear shirt number 38.
