Sheffield Wednesday have completed the loan signing of Arsenal wide midfielder Sanchez Watt until 16 January.

The 20-year-old, who made his Arsenal debut in the Carling Cup in September 2009, spent much of last season on loan at Leeds United.

He has also played for England Under-19s, but has been unable to establish himself in Arsenal's first-team squad.

Watt is eligible to play for the Owls against Leyton Orient at Hillsborough on Saturday.

News of the signing has been tempered by the fact leading scorer Gary Madine has been ruled out of action for six weeks with a broken toe.

Defender Lewis Buxton is also facing a month on the sidelines with a hamstring problem.
