Owls Line Up Clarke Loan Move

Owls Line Up Clarke Loan Move

Wednesday are said to be lining up a loan move for out-of-favour striker Leon Clarke to release funds to strengthen at the back.

The striker has long been linked with a move away from S6 after failing to win over the fans and management alike at Hillsborough following his arrival from Wolves.

And now Owls boss Brian Laws is set to give the green light for Clarke to make the move from Wednesday to pave the way for a new defender to come in to the club on loan.

Clarke was all set for a move to Southend United last season after impressing at Roots Hall while on loan in League One, a spell which saw him bag seven goals, but the move collapsed at the eleventh hour.

He returned to S6 to play a part in the Owls' survival in the Championship towards the end of last season, bagging two crucial goals against Leicester City and Norwich respectively, but has since failed to nail down a starting spot.

And with the return of Francis Jeffers almost complete, and Akpo Sodje still to return to the fold, Clarke could well be deemed surplus to requirements at Hillsborough.

you lot can ***** off, if you hadnt knocked him so much he might have been useful for us, he is very big and strong and sometimes we lack strength, but no, you fake fans have knock and boo and criticise.

I tried backing him, ozzie, I really did but to quote benowl "he does my head in". He has strength, height, a great touch and can score goals but week in week out he's just chuffing useless. I don't understand it, I really don't.

Anyone think that it might be his confidence thats shot to pieces due to the fact of people booing him just about every time he was on the pitch. That just shows me how immature some people can be sometime when they think they are doing themselves a favour.

You can`t just out it down to lack of confidence . All players go through spells of low confidence but they come good at some point.

when he was at southend (yes i realise that they were the league below) the fans were on his side and he was playing well, same goes for oldham. some players thrive on confidence, hes not got a bad scoring record in fact as far as goals to minutes on pitch go he is probably doing alot better then deon burton.
