Out-of-favour West Brom striker John Hartson has been linked with a loan move to Wednesday according to reports in today’s Daily Mirror.

The former Welsh international has fallen down the pecking order with West Brom boss Tony Mowbray with Kevin Phillips, Ishmael Miller, Roman Bednar, Craig Beattie and Zoltan Gera all battling for a striking role for the Baggies.

And Mowbray is keen to offload Hartson in the January transfer window, having failed to make even a substitute appearance for Albion in a tough season for the former Celtic man this term.

Hartson has already been shipped out to Norwich City on loan, but he only managed two starts for the Canaries and two substitute appearances.

But rumours in today’s press point towards Owls boss Brian Laws looking to give the experienced hitman one more chance in the Championship come January, with Francis Jeffers out with a long term injury.
