Aston Villa's Gary Gardner moves to Sheffield Wednesday

12 February 2014

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner on an emergency loan.

The 22-year-old will stay with Wednesday until March 12 and is eligible for Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round tie against Charlton.

Gardner, who progressed through Villa's academy, made his Premier League debut for the club against Chelsea in 2011 and has made 18 first-team appearances.

He missed a big chunk of the 2012/13 season through injury, but returned to first-team action for Villa against Wigan on the final day.

The England Under-21 international had a previous loan spell at Coventry in November 2011 and scored on his league debut in a 2-1 defeat to Brighton.
