Caolan Lavery joins Southend United on loan from Sheffield Wednesday
SOUTHEND United have completed the loan signing of Sheffield Wednesday striker Caolan Lavery until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old forward is currently struggling with a hamstring injury.
But Blues boss Paul Sturrock insisted he was delighted to have brought in the youngster who has yet to make a senior appearance in his career.
“We’re delighted to have got the young lad in and we’re confident he can make a big impact for the remainder of the season," said Sturrock.
“He’s a bright player and we hope we can help him improve as a player.
"We’ve been looking at him for a while so we’re very pleased to have got him here until the end of the season.”
