Sheffield Wednesday’s young defender will join the senior setup after injury sacking and loan withdrawal

Ryan Galvin is set to join Sheffield Wednesday’s senior squad when he returns from injury later this month.

Owls boss Darren Moore has confirmed the plan is for the defender to rejoin the first-team setup after his loan spell with Maidstone United was interrupted. Galvin was loaned to the National League club in September and played in 23 games before suffering a muscle injury.

Moore says they are both looking to follow in the footsteps of goalkeeper Cameron Dawson, who excelled in a season-long loan deal with Exeter last term, helping them win promotion.

“He’s given games at a competitive level and he looks stronger,” Moore said of Galvin’s season at Kent. “He looks more mature and we’ll see how these next few weeks go.
