Sodje Leaves Trial With Owls

Sodje Leaves Trial With Owls

Wednesday have given up on signing trialist Sam Sodje after a series of niggling injuries ruled him out of featuring in reserves matches.

The former Charlton Athletic and Leeds United defender had been training with Wednesday with a view to signing as soon as the Owls' transfer embargo was lifted.

But after failing to be fit enough to feature in two reserve games for boss Alan Irvine to cast an eye over him, it has been mutually agreed that Sodje will leave the club.

Irvine told the Sheffield Star: 'Sam missed a couple of training sessions with injuries, and that made it very difficult; he was scheduled to play against Derby, but he has had a bit of a hamstring strain so wasn't going to be able to play.

'I think he thought he needed a decision a bit quicker, on what was going to happen, and I couldn't give him any decision without seeing him play in games. He's the type of player who is much easier to assess in games rather than in training.'

Sodje is keen to find a new club after being released by Charlton over the summer.

I hope this isnt some kind of PR spin. translated- no investment, no transfer embargo lifted, no hope. This whole investment episode is taking far too long, anybody else get the impression that the investment is going down the toilet?

Ya, looks doomed - I don't believe at this stage anything is going to happen. Does anyone know; if England does get WC2018, who pays for the stadium redevelopment? Does the FA pay X% or is it all SWFC?

If he's having a few injuries and hasn't been able to play in any reserve matches, I think we're better off without him. Last think we need are more injury-prone players!

owl1, im pretty certain all stadium redevelopments are government funded. If we get the world cup its another plus for investers to look at. Cant see bidding to get our stadium involved if it means we have to spend a few million doing it up

Maybe the WC2018 decision is holding up the investment (not due till 2nd Dec though) i.e. is Hillsborough going to be part of the World cup (biggest sporting event in the world)

Yup, I think this investment fiasco is circling the drain. The disappointment, I'm used to... It's not like we haven't been around this block before. I'm just saddened that Wilkinson has gotten his good name caught up in all this. He's a genuine bloke with the club's best intentions at heart. Sad business all around.
