Joe Bennett: Poised to make loan move to Owls

Aston Villa defender Joe Bennett is poised to join Sheffield Wednesday on loan, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Bennett has only recently returned to Villa Park after a spell out on loan at Premier League rivals Bournemouth.

The 25-year-old never made a single appearance for Bournemouth during his loan stint due to an Achilles injury, but he is now back to full fitness.

Bennett, who joined Villa from Middlesbrough in 2012, has found himself down the pecking order at Villa Park and spent last season out on loan at Brighton.

Sheffield Wednesday have been eyeing a new left-back during this month’s transfer window and they have agreed a deal for former England Under-21 international Bennett.

Bennett is due to undergo a medical at Hillsborough on Tuesday morning ahead of finalising his loan move to the Championship club until the end of the season.
