Sheffield Wednesday have signed Manchester City keeper Nicky Weaver on loan.Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock has signed Manchester City goalkeeper Nicky Weaver on loan.
The former Mansfield Town custodian comes to Hillsborough on a six-week loan deal as cover for the injured David Lucas.
Wednesday's number one will miss Saturday's Championship home clash with Derby County with a knee injury he sustained in training on Friday.
The situation prompted Sturrock to snap up the Sheffield-born keeper on loan until December 17, with Weaver delighted to make the temporary move to The Owls.
"It's a good move for me, especially being a Sheffield lad, and hopefully I'll get the chance to show what I can do," Weaver told Manchester City's official website.
