Slusarski in, Burton out at Owls

Sheffield Wednesday have completed the signing of West Brom striker Bartosz Slusarski on a month's loan, with Deon Burton leaving to join Charlton.

Jamaica international Burton, 32, has joined the Addicks on loan with a view to a permanent move in January.

Poland international Slusarksi, 26, spent a month with the Owls last season, scoring once in seven games.

The deal to bring him back to Hillsborough is also with a view to a permanent transfer.

That would bring to an end Slusarski's Hawthorns nightmare, with the forward making only one appearance in more than a year since joining the Baggies from Groclin Dyskobolia.

Owls manager Brian Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Deon Burton has been a fantastic servant to the club but even he would admit that he hasn't had a great season.

"I wasn't in a position to offer him a new contract and I didn't want it to get to the end of the season and leave him without a club.

"Charlton came in for him and it's a great opportunity for him.

"Bartosz did well for us when he was on loan last season. He's at a good age and I still believe the best is yet to come from him."
