Wednesday loan target Marlon Harewood has opted to join Championship promotion hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan from Aston Villa.

Harewood, who was way down the pecking order under Martin O’Neill at Villa Park, was one of a number of options Owls boss Brian Laws was thought to be looking at to bolster his squad.

But the 29-year-old looked to be heading in the direction of former club Nottingham Forest to help them out in the battle against relegation back to League One.

A late twist in the tale though as seen the former West Ham man have a change of heart and agree a deal to go to Molineux.

Harewood will go to Mick McCarthy’s men on loan initially, but the deal could be made permanent in the summer should the move prove successful.
