Otsemobor Signs For Wednesday

Otsemobor Signs For Wednesday

Wednesday have completed their second signing in as many days with the arrival of defender Jon Otsemobor on a two-year deal from Southampton.

The 27-year-old is out-of-contract at Saints and has opted for a move to Hillsborough for the forthcoming Npower League One campaign.

Owls boss Alan Irvine said: "I`ve known about Jon for a long time, since he was a youth team player at Liverpool. He was a centre half at that time but has since developed into a very attack-minded full back.

"He's a good athlete, quick, strong and knows what it's like to be at a big club having spent his early years at Liverpool and then going on to play for the likes of Norwich and Southampton. He certainly ticks a lot of boxes."

Otsemobor added: "It goes without saying they are one of, if not the biggest club in the division.

"The most important thing for this club is to get out of this division as soon as possible and myself and the other new recruits can hopefully help push towards that and get the rewards over the season.'

Vital Wednesday understands there could be more news on new arrivals at Hillsborough tomorrow. Keep posted to Vital Wednesday for all the latest news.

We need to keep Spurr as I'm sure he'll come good again next season. He would be one of the best left backs in the Championship, never mind League One

Otsemobor....interesting signing. Can definitely be a bit lazy but has blistering pace. Let's hope Irvine can get the best out of him.

Not bad signing needs to address the centre of midfield this is our biggest problem and has been for a long time.
