Sheffield Wednesday have signed striker Jay Bothroyd from QPR on a loan deal until January.

Bothroyd will be reunited with manager Dave Jones, who signed the 30-year-old for Cardiff in August 2008.

He scored 45 goals in 128 appearances for the Bluebirds in the Championship, earning him a surprise inclusion in Fabio Capello's England squad for the 2-1 friendly defeat to France in 2010.

Bothroyd started his career with Arsenal before joining Coventry for £1million in 2000.

He will wear the number 24 shirt for Wednesday.
