Sam Hutchinson: Joined Wednesday on loan

His versatility of being able to play centre-back or right-back means the former England Under-21 star will aid the Owls' depleted numbers and he has Championship experience having featured for Nottingham Forest in the 2012-13 season.

The 24-year-old will wear the number 41 shirt and is available for the FA Cup fifth-round tie with Charlton on Saturday.

He has been on the books of Chelsea since the age of seven, graduating through the ranks to earn his first professional contract at Stamford Bridge.

Hutchinson debuted for the Blues against Everton from the bench in the top tier before making his maiden start facing QPR in the League Cup.

A call-up to the England Under-21 squad swiftly followed after he had already earned recognition at Under-18 and Under-19 level.

The Londoner went on to become a regular reserve team captain for Chelsea and then enjoyed a fruitful loan spell with Championship side Nottingham Forest during the 2012/13 campaign.

Hutchinson made nine appearances for Forest, scoring one goal along the way, before moving to the Dutch top flight with Vitesse Arnhem last summer. He was recalled by Chelsea in January.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
