Motherwell's Reynolds Arrives In S6

Motherwell's Reynolds Arrives In S6

Wednesday completed a double signing yesterday, with Motherwell defender Mark Reynolds following Carlisle striker Gary Madine to Hillsborough.

Reynolds, 23, has been linked with the a move to the Owls throughout the January transfer window and Alan Irvine finally got his man yesterday for an undisclosed fee.

The Scot follows Michael Morrison and Reda Johnson as the third defender to put pen-to-paper on a deal with the Owls.

'Mark is very quick and has played a lot of games for someone of 23-years-old. He can play at left back or centre back and will add more quality to our squad,' Irvine told the official SWFC website.

'He has represented Scotland through to Under-21 level and comes with glowing references from everyone that I spoke to.'

Reynolds came through to Motherwell Academy and had racked up an impressive 192 appearances for the SPL club since breaking through into the first team.

He has previously been linked with a move to Scottish giants Rangers and had attracted the interest of a host of English clubs before Wednesday snapped him up.

Reynolds is expected to go straight into the Owls squad who will face Leyton Orient away on Saturday.

Really happy about this signing, was highly rated in the SPL. Wonder what his contract length is? As for saturday, it needs to be a straight swap with Reynolds & Purse in my opinion!!

It's been said a thousand times, but I'm so glad to be signing the players that we want, not just the has-beens and others who come for free. THANK YOU Milan!!! It will be good to get Reynolds into the fold and watch our new defense get in swing together. Up the Owls!

Quality signing, imagine he will go in at DL not in for Purse.

How is it all us so called "amateurs" can see that Purse is single handedly destroying our season yet our "professional" coaching staff cant!? Buxton RB, Johnson & Morrison CB and Reynolds LB for me! Spurr can go for me? As can Purse and Beavers! Purse and Beevers I guess would make adequate cover though I guess? A squad of this quality should not be 9th!
Owls That!

Purse has been a disaster since day one and summed up Brian Laws signings. Past it if he ever had it. I am a believer in building from the back. I thought Sturrock (an attacker i think) was starting to get it right and had a good nucleus - although they played a bit too negatively. Whereas Laws(a defender) got it completely wrong. A refelection of this was the impact Mcauley had on them when he was in charge. Sturrock left the far better team - and he only had turners squad to work with. I believe Laws biggest mistake was Purse - enough is enough. I am so glad that we are building from the back as it makes me feel that the people making the decisions know what they are talking about. I am also delighted with the defenders we have bought and have a great feeling about all 3 - even if one of them shares the same pastimes as John Stape. Not sure about the striker though, but definitely a new dimension to what we already have.
