Sheffield Wednesday have signed Chelsea midfielder Jimmy Smith on a six-month loan deal.

The 21-year-old has previously been on loan at QPR, where he scored six goals in 22 league starts, and Norwich City.

Manager Brian Laws has told BBC Radio Sheffield Smith is a welcome addition to the side, especially for set pieces.

"He's got great delivery, I was disappointed with our delivery from the dead ball situation last year so we have got quality on the ball."

The highly-rated youngster came through the Stamford Bridge youth system and has featured heavily for Chelsea reserves, captaining the side.

And Laws added: "You don't come from a club like Chelsea without having good credentials."
