Owls take in Treacy, loan out Morrison

TWO Ireland caps are on the move as Clinton Morrison has joined Brentford on loan, while Keith Treacy will also spend some time in League One after leaving Championship side Burnley for Sheffield Wednesday.

Treacy's move to Hillsborough is a clear sign that the Dublin-born winger now has no chance of making Ireland's squad for the Euro 2012 finals.

He had initially caught the eye of Giovanni Trapattoni, making his senior debut against Argentina in 2010. He won his sixth cap against Croatia only last August, but has not featured in an Ireland panel since then.

"I've not been playing for Burnley so this is a great opportunity for me to hopefully get some football under the belt," said the Dubliner.

"I was aware of the interest from Wednesday and as soon as I found out that Dave Jones wanted me there was no hesitation. This is a big club in a promotion battle and that is one of the main reasons for me coming here."

One man on his way out of Wednesday is ex-international Morrison.

"Brentford here I come, hopefully can do well there and score some goals," Morrison said on Twitter, claiming that he chose Brentford despite offers from other League One teams.

Meanwhile, Ireland U19 cap Liam Irwin could follow in the footsteps of his famous dad.

Liam has spent the last four seasons at Bolton Wanderers but has been released and offered a trial at Oldham, where his father, Denis, made his name before his successful move to Manchester United.
