Wednesday’s urgent search for a defender today resulted in a deal to take Cardiff youngster Adedeji Oshilaja on loan until March 12.
The 20-year-old centre half has played twice for Cardiff’s first team, in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup last season.
This season he has spent two months on loan at Newport County, making eight League Two appearances, two in the FA Cup and two in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
He was born in London and came through Cardiff’s academy.
Oshilaja will join the injury-hit Owls squad for the game at Reading tomorrow.
