Owls linked with former Leeds man

Owls linked with former Leeds man

Wednesday are today being linked with a move for former Celtic and Leeds United defender Darren O'Dea.

O'Dea is a free agent after being released by the SPL giants and Wednesday are one of a number of clubs reported to be chasing the services of the 25-year-old.

The defender spent last season on loan in the Championship with Leeds United but the Whites aren't understood to be interested in taking him back to Elland Road on a permanent basis.

Bolton Wanderers and Burnley are the other clubs keen on the defender, according to the Yorkshire Post.

O'Dea is currently preparing for Euro 2012 with the Republic of Ireland.

Can't quite fathom why we are continually linked with defenders. Would have thought a 20 goal striker was top priority and don't tell me Madine is the answer because he isn't.

Dooley, it's because Batth was on loan and Rob Jones won't cut it in The Championship.

Good luck if you get him. Very slow, one dimensional and a liability. We was going to offer him a contract until he got a stupid sending off at the end of the season (his third suspension of the season).

If Leeds don't want him we definatly don't. Plenty of better players out there looking for clubs and plenty of time till August. Up the Owls

This site is gash! We've signed Mattock and there's nothing on here about it.
