Owls Target Joins Notts County

Owls Target Joins Notts County

Defender Sam Sodje, who was on trial with Wednesday last month, has joined the Owls' League One rivals Notts County today.

The former Charlton Athletic and Leeds United man was expected to put pen-to-paper on a deal at Hillsborough as soon as the Owls' current transfer embargo was lifted.

But with the embargo still on Wednesday, and with boss Alan Irvine deeming Sodje not yet fit enough to feature in his plans, the club parted company with the defender.

It seems the loss is County's game, with new Magpies boss Paul Ince wasting no time in agreeing a deal with the Nigeria international to make him his first signing at Meadow Lane.

The 31-year-old has penned a deal with County until 2012.

his injury's cant have been that bad then because he'd have had a medical at county to sign for um maybe this is a sign that the investment is'nt coming and could'nt afford him that's why he's gone elsewhere ??

Deffo agree, yet again the board filling the fans with crap that they keep churning out time after time, and people wonder why people gather outside the club and demand answers and yes give grief to " an old man" (wilkinson), not my way to descibe him, but is there any wonder, can't see it happening, administration, then investment and maybe promotion next season......

iv give up with this bunch of investors who promised the £2million upfront. nearly a month later and still waiting, hardly sound reliable. iv prepared myself for the worst come the 17th. still, they may yet surprise me.

Wednesday are under a transfer embargo due to unpaid HMRC taxes so couldn't sign him, the injury story may be just an excuse as he's not played for a while and was probably not fit.

As everyone, sick and tired of the investment saga. Sick of the lies and misrepresentations by all concerned including Howard Wilkinson and Chris Turner. However, which investor in there right mind would put £2 million in as a good will gesture when the chairman has made it clear that he still has 2 other interested parties talkking. Thanks for the money lads but ime selling to this other lot. The whole thing is a joke. Wednesday are a joke
