Bolton Wanderers midfielder Stuart Holden has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan that will see the USA international stay at Hillsborough until April 24th. 

Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones has also bought in Hull City's Seyi Olofinjana from Hull City in an attempt to pull Wednesday away from the Championship trap door. Jones has revealed that Holden could make his debut for Sheffield against fellow strugglers Barnsley on Saturday.

Dave Jones spoke to BBC Radio Sheffield and said: "He just wants to get going again, that is the most important thing to him. He's quality on the ball, he's got an eye for a goal and if he hadn't had the injuries he's had then we wouldn't have been able to get him."

Holden's career at Bolton Wanderers hit the rocks when he sustained a knee injury whilst playing against Manchester United in March 2011. This ruled Holden out for six months, but he still received the award for player of the season at the Reebok for the 2010-2011 season. 

Holden returned in the September of 2011, and played 90 minutes for the first team against Aston Villa. But following a standard scan, the club announced Holden had suffered cartilage damage that would rule him out for another six months. 

It was January 2013 before Holden made a return, coming on as a late substitute in Bolton's 2-0 victory over former club Sunderland in the F.A cup. But that was his last appearance under Dougie Freedman and the Wanderers boss has decided a loan move will help Holden kick-start his career again.
