Danny Mayor joins Southend United from Sheffield Wednesday

Southend United have signed Sheffield Wednesday winger Danny Mayor on an initial 28-day loan.

The 22-year-old, who has joined with a view to staying until the end of the season, completed the deal in time to play in Tuesday's loss to Cheltenham.

He arrived at Hillsborough from Preston in the summer but has made just one start for the Owls since.

"Danny played against us last year, I thought he had two excellent games," boss Paul Sturrock told BBC Essex.

The Scot added after the 2-1 defeat: "He moved to Sheffield Wednesday, but he hasn't been able to push into the team. He needs games.

"I think he'll be a good addition, we've been struggling for a left-sider. Hopefully he will come and do the business."
