Purse Snapped Up

Purse Snapped Up

The first of the quality signings promised by Brian Laws - Darren Purse pens a two year deal following his release by Cardiff.

Laws spoke to the official site: 'My main priority this summer is to sign players with quality and experience. In Darren Purse we have secured the services of someone with both of those qualities in abundance.'

'He has experience of getting promoted from this division and of playing at the very top level but most importantly he is a leader on the pitch. We already have some excellent young players at Sheffield Wednesday and Darren will help bring out the best in the other defenders around him.'

'The improved budget I have been provided this year has enabled me to make some positive movements in the transfer already and I am confident of making one or two more additions in the not too distant future.'

An excellent addition to the squad: proven Championship experience and certain to be a 'voice' on the pitch and off.

Don't be so pessimistic guys...... I think it's just what we need at the back. We already have a decent amount of quality there and DP is just the sort of player to bring it all together.

A good squad signing. Experience and all that but he wouldn't get in my first team. Defensively we are strong. What we really need to sort out our goal difference is the ability to score some fecking goals. STRIKER please Brian, and please let him be a GOALSCORER capable of 20 goals a season. Get that kind of player and the playoffs will be guaranteed.

Is this the player who was waiting to see if MK Dons got promoted first before he made his mind up.

good signing we have been indifferent in defence away from home this season more competition for places can only be a good thing we now need potter to sign and a striker leroy lita is now a free agent maybe worth a look.
