Sheffield Wednesday striker Caolan Lavery has joined League Two side Portsmouth on loan until January.

The 22-year-old will remain at Fratton Park until January 19.

His switch reunites him with Pompey boss Paul Cook and assistant Leam Richardson, who signed him on loan last season when in charge of Chesterfield.

Lavery said: "I had offers from other places a lot closer to Sheffield and in higher divisions, but I know Paul and Leam very well.

"Their ambition is fantastic, as is the way they like football to be played and when you look at the size of this club, I couldn’t really say no.

"I’d like to be part of the success that I’m sure Pompey will have this season and I’m looking forward to getting started.

"At the age I’m at now, I need to be playing games on a regular basis and scoring goals."

Lavery has started two games for the Owls this season - both in the Capital One Cup - but has been named among the substitutes for Championship matches on just one occasion.
