Collins Set For Darlo Switch

Out-of-favour Owls and former Sunderland defender Patrick Collins is set to end his stay at Hillsborough by agreeing a move to League Two side Darlington subject to a medical.

The 21-year-old has failed to impress Owls boss Paul Sturrock since being brought to the club by former boss Chris Turner, and has been told he can leave Hillsborough should an offer come in.

Darlington boss David Hodgson told the official Darlington website: 'Patrick has got great pace, and being 6ft 3ins, can command his area very well. 'He is a north-east lad and can play anywhere across the back four.'

Collins moved to S6 in the summer of 2004 of a free transfer from Sunderland. He was a regular in the England under-20 set-up and began at Hillsborough as a right-back until the arrival of Sturrock.

He was sent out on-loan to League One side Swindon Town at the start of last season in a bid to keep his fitness levels high and prove his worth. But Collins only managed 13 starts for the club during his four-month stay.

He made 28 starts for the Owls during his stay at the club, scoring one goal. Vital Sheffield Wednesday wishes Paddy all the best for the future....

He had good potential while he was here, shame we couldn't keep him longer but hopefully Sturrock will use the extra wages to bring in someone else. Hopefully a midfielder or striker!
