Andelko Savic

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Sampdoria striker Andelko Savic on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old, who is a Switzerland Under-21 international, made his debut for the Serie A side in January.

Boss Dave Jones told BBC Radio Sheffield: "He's a young kid with good ability and he just needs to play games and get to know the English way.

"We've got a chance to take him on a permanent deal at the end of the season and there's a price agreed on that."

Jones added: "I'm not looking at him to be ready now. We'll give him a few weeks to settle in and let him find his feet but we've liked what we've seen so far.

"We think we might have a really good player on our hands. People say we're concentrating on young players but it's part of my job to do that."
