Bullen Offered New Owls Deal

Bullen Offered New Owls Deal

Wednesday captain Lee Bullen has been offered a new one-year deal to stay at the club by boss Brian Laws in light of his recent top performances.

As revealed earlier this week on Vital Sheffield Wednesday, the Owls gaffer has started negotiations with the Scottish defender about a one-year extension to his deal.

'We are in negotiations now with the players who are out of contract,' Laws told skysports.com.

'We have started negotiations [with] Lee Bullen in particular and Steven MacLean.

'Lee's been an integral part of the team and we have been delighted with him so far this season. We have offered him another year.'

The 36-year-old has been a key figure for the club in the Owls' recent fine form which has seen them move to within five points of the Championship play-off spots, and Laws has already revealed he is one of the fittest members of the current playing squad despite his age.

The Edinburgh-born defender is somewhat of a cult hero at S6 after featuring in all eleven positions for the club to help them to Championship survival after he lifted the play-off trophy the previous season in just his first campaign at Wednesday.

And the former Dunfermline man is set to get another crack at the whip in the famous blue and white stripes to help Wednesday achieve their aim of promotion next season - if not this.

Glad Bully has been offered a new deal, if anyone deserves one then it has to be him. Also pleased Macca has been offered one after all thats been said.

bad move, appreciate the guy for everything he's done but this is not a forward move for next season

Why not? He's not one of the best defenders in the division but I'm sure Laws has highlighted the defence as an area to strengthen in the summer so Bully could be a back-up? He's shown he can do it by playing well in our recent good run.

Got to be useful as a squad player and motivator.. we still need that extra star man in the centre of defence though.
