BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, March 28, 2013
Bolton Wanderers midfielder Stuart Holden has joined Championship club Sheffield Wednesday on a short-term 30-day loan.

"We acquired Holden for one month through April 24," Wednesday press officer Trevor Braithwait told YA on Thursday. "He is available this weekend."

Holden, 27, returned from a long term injury in January, but has seen inconsistent time since then.

The loan to Sheffield Wednesday will give Holden a chance to help a club in important games, as the four-time English champions sit just one point clear of the relegation zone in the second flight.

Holden has had a difficult three-year run in England since leaving MLS.

In March, 2010 the American broke his leg after being after a tackle from Nigel De Jong while playing for the US before Manchester United's Jonny Evans caused extensive knee damage with a horrific challenge a year later. Subsequent recovery efforts took nearly two years and the Scotland-born Holden was not cleared to play until January 2013.

Holden's debut could come this Saturday when the 21st place Owls host the Tykes of Barnsley at Hillsborough.
