Owls confirm deal for Blackpool's Llera

Owls confirm deal for Blackpool's Llera

Wednesday have confirmed the permanent signing of Spanish defender Miguel Llera from Championship side Blackpool.

The 32-year-old has signed a deal with the Owls until the summer of 2013 after being released by the Seasiders.

Llera impressed Owls manager Gary Megson during a recent one-month loan spell, where he made three appearances. Wednesday won all three of those matches and it was enough to earn the experienced centre-back a full-time deal at Hillsborough.

He's a former Charlton Athletic player and could feature against the Addicks this Saturday when Wednesday host Chris Powell's men at Hillsborough.

He signed for Blackpool in time for the start of this season but struggled for chances and was sent out to Brentford on-loan before the Owls snapped him up at the end of November.

If Beevers stays it means we now have strong cover for two vital positions and it leaves Reda free to do what he does best: Amaze us!

Beevers on loan to chesterfield is one of the rumours flying about, wouldn't mind as long as we had a clause that says we can have him back if we get injuries? Pretty pleased with llera, he's not going to be 1st choice but 3 wins from 3 speaks for itself. And as for reda.... he never does anything less than amaze me.

Surely means the exit door for Beevers which is a shame as he once should good promise. Pity its not Marshall we have signed on a permanent deal.

Don't think this signing means the exit of "The Beever" does mean we have suitable cover for both centers for the run in, think it clearly shows that Reda is no longer considered a center and with what he's done since switching he's pretty much confirmed that to me to. Reynolds exit I think ensures Beevers squad place, I wouldn't mind seeing him on loan again with the clause that North Stander mentioned. I wonder who the two players Meggo mentioned in his post match interview who refused to go out on loan before Christmas were??! UTO Solid signing just hope there are creative ones to follow, think it would be the Leauge 1 coup of the season if we could pen Ben 10 on a perm deal... IMMIT

Oh and a work-mate (you can guess who he supports) just said "Signed another Charlton reject I see...??" To which I said "You would bite ya leg off to get hold of Semedo if Llera has similar impact in time you'll be running scared!!" WAWAW

3 appaerances and 3 wins Did Llera play against Walsall?

Loving the appreciation of Reda Johnson. Definitely a Wednesday legend in the making. Speaking of league 1 legendary African owls I wonder what Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu is up to?
10/01/2012 21:22:00
p.s. there are clearly lots of league one legendary African owls...

Also is it possible that Megson sees Beevers as the long term replacement for Jones. When Meggo arrived he stated he was a fan of Beevers but the defence was leaky. He signed Jones and Batth and we stopped conceding but pound for pound and in terms of talent I would say Beevers is the better defender. He just needs more experience and in Jones, Megson had a centre back that he trusts not one that needs to pick up experience.
