Sheffield Wednesday have signed Derby County forward Jack Marriott and Cardiff City defender Aden Flint on loan for the rest of the season.

Marriott, 26, has scored once in six appearances for the Rams this term.

He scored Derby's goal in their 2-1 Championship play-off final loss to Aston Villa in May 2019, having netted twice in the 4-2 semi-final second-leg win at Leeds United.

Centre-back Flint, 31, has not played for Cardiff since before lockdown.

Former Bristol City centre-back Flint moved to Cardiff from Middlesbrough for £4m in July 2019 and scored five goals in 30 games for the Bluebirds.

Marriott signed a three-year deal with Derby when he joined from Peterborough United in the summer of 2018.

The Rams have announced that his contract has been extended until 2022.

He began his career at Ipswich Town before moving to Luton Town in 2015 where he helped the Hatters reach the League Two play-offs during his two-year spell at Kenilworth Road.
