Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones has strengthened his attacking options by signing Sampdoria striker Andelko Savic on loan.

The 20-year-old has joined on a season-long loan deal at Hillsborough.

The coveted striker began his career at youth level with FC Basel before making the switch to Italian Serie A side Sampdoria in 2011.

Savic, who has represented Switzerland at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-21 level, made his Serie A debut in January of this year.

He said: “I am very happy to come to Sheffield Wednesday, this is a very big club and a very big opportunity for me.

“I am a big admirer of English football, it is very different from over in Italy, it is much more physical but I like it here.

“I am really looking forward to getting started. I am enjoying the training, there are some very good players here, good coaches and a good manager and I want to show everyone what I can do.”
