Wednesday are today all set to sign young Chelsea striker Ben Sahar on a one month loan from the Premiership club.

Owls boss Brian Laws revealed that he had agreed a deal in principle to bring the young Israeli international to Hillsborough, but the player had yet to agree to the deal.

But Laws has now revealed that Sahar is keen to link up with the Championship club for a month’s loan deal to get some vital first team experience while he’s down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

‘He wants to come. He said he’s spoken to a few people, and got good recommendations about the club,’ Laws told the Sheffield Star.

‘I’m pleased. He’ll give us an extra option. Although he’s young, he’s certainly not raw. He’s also played in front of big crowds, so he can handle that.

‘His credentials are very good for such a young player, and he plays above his age.’

Sahar is set to go straight in to the Owls’ squad to face a crucial match with Cardiff City on Saturday.
