Owls striker Caolan Lavery has joined Chesterfield on loan until March 7.

In recent weeks, Lavery has slipped down in the pecking order at Hillsborough. Since recovering from a serious knee injury, the 22-year-old has made five substitute appearances.

However, he was left out of Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Reading and Owls boss Stuart Gray has since strengthened his attack by capturing Sergiu Bus for an undisclosed fee from CSKA Sofia.

Lavery becomes the second Owls forward to head to the Proact Stadium. Emmanuel Dieseruvwe is also on loan with the Spireites.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook said: “We’re delighted that Caolan will be joining us. He’s a very exciting forward player who can play as a striker and we thank Sheffield Wednesday for their help with the deal.

“We’re all a little disappointed at the prospect of losing Eoin Doyle but we feel that Caolan can come in and pick up exactly where Eoin left off and hit the ground running.”
