Derby County’s Luke Varney returns to Wednesday on a loan until January 1st.

Brian Laws’ relief is apparent in his statement on the Owls official web site, as one of the loan successes from last season gets another chance to impress the Owls faithful.

26 year old Varney scored two in four for the Owls last time around, and his timely signing provides welcome assistance to the misfiring Wednesday attack of late.

Laws said: ‘I am delighted that Luke Varney has agreed to join us on loan for the rest of the calendar year. He showed our supporters last season that he is a very capable player at this level who can create opportunities and score goals. Luke’s energy and endeavour was something that really impressed me last season. He never stops running and will certainly give opposition defenders plenty to worry about in the Championship.’

Amen to that. Varney will not be available to play against the Rams, and is Carling Cup-tied, but this is great news. He’ll be in contention for the Scunthorpe match.
