Portsmouth have signed Sheffield Wednesday striker Caolan Lavery on a three-month loan deal.

The 22-year-old, who was born in Canada, has featured just twice for the Owls this season, with both appearances coming in the League Cup.

The striker has represented Northern Ireland at Under-21 level.

"At the age I'm at now, I need to be playing games on a regular basis and scoring goals," Lavery told Portsmouth's club website.external-link

"Portsmouth's ambition is fantastic, as is the way they like football to be played and when you look at the size of this club, I couldn't really say no.

"I'd like to be part of the success that I'm sure Pompey will have this season and I'm looking forward to getting started."
