Bywater comes in to save Wednesday

Derby County goalkeeper Stephen Bywater has been signed by Sheffield Wednesday on a 93-day emergency loan deal to provide cover for the injured Nicky Weaver.

Weaver, Wednesday’s first choice keeper this season, recently picked up a knee injury and is expected to be out for at least three months. He is due to fly to America to see a specialist as he hits the road to recovery.

Bywater, 30, is expected to remain in Sheffield until December 17. He has also had spells at West Ham and Wolves and has been capped six times at England Under 21 level.
