Newcastle United defender James Tavernier has signed on an emergency loan deal at Hillsborough until January 2012.

As reported on Vital Wednesday earlier today, the young defender will bolster Wednesday’s defensive options before the loan window closes this Thursday.

The versatile defender, who came through Leeds United’s Academy, has spent the first part of this season on-loan at Carlisle United and came up against the Owls when the Cumbrians defeated Wednesday 3-2 in npower League One earlier this term.

The 20-year-old is expected to go straight into Wednesday’s squad for this weekend’s home clash against Leyton Orient.

Blackpool defender Miguel Llera has also been linked with a move to Wednesday and Vital understands the defender is also set to complete an emergency loan deal before Thursday.
