Republic of Ireland and Burnley winger Keith Treacy has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.

The six-time Ireland international has played 27 times for Burnley this season, but joins the Owls on an emergency loan as midfield cover. The 23-year-old Dubliner started his career as a youth with Belvedere FC before joining Blackburn Rovers in 2005. He made twelve league appearances for the Premier League side and spent time on loan at Stockport County and Sheffield United, before joining Preston North End for the 2010-11 season. After Preston’s relegation from the Championship, he joined Burnley last summer on a free transfer.

Treacy is looking forward to helping Sheffield Wednesday’s League One promotion battle. “I was aware of the interest from Sheffield Wednesday last night and as soon as I found out Dave Jones wanted me, there was no hesitation,” Treacy told the club’s official website. “This is a big club in a promotion battle and that is one of the main reasons for me coming here. I already have experience of playing in a Sheffield derby and I’m looking forward to playing again in a great football city.

“I’ve had a long chat with the manager and I’m really looking forward to getting started. I’ve not been playing for Burnley so this is a great opportunity for me to hopefully get some football under the belt. I play mainly on the left but I can also play on the right but I’ll be happy to play anywhere in the team.”

Treacy has been given the number 10 shirt and could make his debut against Leyton Orient on Saturday.
