Purse Leaves Owls By Mutual Consent

Purse Leaves Owls By Mutual Consent

Wednesday captain Darren Purse has left the club by mutual consent and is expected to sign for npower Championship side Millwall.

The Owls have confirmed today on the official club website that the defender, who made 71 appearances for the club during his time at S6, has played his last game for the club.

The statement reads: 'Sheffield Wednesday can confirm that defender Darren Purse has left the club by mutual consent.'

It continued: 'Sheffield Wednesday would like to thank Darren for his services and wish him the best of luck for the future.'

Purse, who joined Wednesday on a free transfer in the summer of 2009 following a spell at Cardiff City, is expected to move to Millwall, who he supported as a boy.

Reports linked the experienced centre-back with a move to the London club today and it looks set to become a reality.

Yes i agree. Thanks Darren for all your work. A good leader but no future at S6 anymore. No doubt you will score against us as some point like all the other we let go.

Nicky Weaver now for skipper until the end of the season?! Think Reda Johnson is primed for it in the future after already skippering Plymouth at times this season.

Well DP was never 'one of his own' so he was probably glad to get shot when the chance arose. Now let's find a CB pairing that really works out of Morrison, Johnson, Reynolds, Beevers or Buxton. I'd like to throw the name Hinds in there but nobody seems to care about him any longer!

to be fair, if his ability matched his attitude he would have been first class. hope one of the new lads now grabs the bull by the horns and leads from the back. really looking forward to watching the new lads develop.
