Owls youngster Jack Stobbs has today joined League Two side Port Vale on a season long-loan deal.
The winger, who captained Wednesday’s Under-23s to the Professional Development League 2 North Title and the National Championship last season, could make his Valiants debut against Chesterfield this weekend.
The 20-year-old, who has featured twice at senior level for the Owls as a substitute, said he is “excited to get going” at Vale Park.
He said: “It (the Vale interest) came about at the end of last season. It has taken a while to get going, but my agent rang me yesterday and said it was finally all going through so I could come in this morning and train.
“I have been at Sheffield since I was six years old, so I have only ever known one place! It is nice to come somewhere else and see what it is like.
“Sheffield Wednesday is a great place to be, a massive club as well. The coaches are good with me, and always have been.
“I had a few setbacks with a couple of bad injuries a couple of years ago when I was breaking into the first team at Sheffield.
“Then I have just been playing under-23s since, so my next step now is to go out on loan and play-first team football so I am excited to get going.”
