Report: Sheffield Wednesday's Caolan Lavery wanted by Oldham Athletic

Sheffield Wednesday's Caolan Lavery could be in line for a loan move to Oldham Athletic, according to reports.

Oldham Athletic are interested in signing Sheffield Wednesday's Caolan Lavery on loan, according to a report in the Sheffield Telegraph.

Oldham are keen to make changes to their team, following the appointment of David Dunn as interim manager, and are said to have identified Lavery as a player who could bolster their attacking threat.

The 22-year-old has found his chances limited at Hillsborough, and the Latics are hopeful that the promise of regular first-team action may convince him to move on a temporary basis. 

Lavery spent a part of last season out on loan at Chesterfield, where he impressed and scored three times in eight appearances. 

Upon his return to Wednesday, he also proved that he could perform at a Championship level, and netted twice for the Owls towards the back end of the campaign.

However, after a summer of change, he seems to have fallen out of favour again - and has made just two appearances so far this term as a result. 

If he does move to Oldham, he will be competing with the likes of Jake Cassidy, Jonathan Forte and Dominic Poleon for a place in the Latics' first-team.
