Wednesday have put their tour to Malta to good use by giving Maltese international Etienne Barbara a two-week trial with the club.

The 27-year-old striker will be part of the Owls squad for their two-week pre-season stay in Malta but is unlikely to play a part in any matches.

The hitman has made over 30 appearances for the Malta national side having played there domestically and also in the German league but is currently a free agent.

Owls boss Brian Laws will be taking a look at Barbara during his two-week stint and will see if the striker can make the step up to feature in the Championship.
