Sheffield Wednesday have signed Slovenian defender David Kasnik from Olimpija Ljubljana, subject to international clearance.

The versatile defender joins the Owls on loan until January 2012.

Kasnik told the club's official website: "Sheffield Wednesday is a really big club and this is a good opportunity for me to impress the manager and the fans."

He added: "I can play in the centre of defence or at left back but I much prefer to play in the centre."

Kasnik moved from hometown club NK Dravograd to Olimpija in 2008.

He helped Olimpija to promotion to the Slovenian PrvaLiga in 2009 after the club spent five years absent from top-flight football.
