Addicks Hijack Sodje Bid

Addicks Hijack Sodje Bid

Wednesday target Sam Sodje looks set to reject an offer to move to Hillsborough in favour of a move to Championship rivals Charlton Athletic.

The former Brentford man, who is surplus to requirements at the Madjeski Stadium after falling down the pecking order, was all set for a permanant move to South Yorkshire at the start of the week after agreeing terms with the Owls.

But he now looks set for a u-turn after Alan Pardew showed interest in signing the defender at the last minute, with Sodje preferring to stay closer to home rather than move to Yorkshire.

'There's creeping movement on that one, I would say,' Royals boss Steve Coppell told the club's official website regarding Sodje. 'Inevitably there will be a last minute flurry of activity.

'Something will happen I think, but it might be a loan, not permanent.'

Wednesday are desperate to add to their defensive ranks after a poor start to the season and had banked on Sodje putting pen to paper on a switch to S6.

And the move looked even more likely after Wednesday also snapped up Sam's brother Akpo from Port Vale on a three-year deal yesterday.

But the Owls could well be forced to revert to 'plan b' with just two days remaining to bolster their squad before the close of the transfer window at midnight tomorrow.

Another one bites the dust. No-one wants to come to Hillsboro unless from a lower league team. No chance of getting Premiership class players in - even reserve team players don't want to come. Think DA has had enough - tryin to get his money back then he'll be out in a shot - more than likely leavin us in the ****. He's obviously not interested anymore, nor is anyone else with any money.

He's already signed for them on loan. Why Laws makes public the players he wants to sign weeks in advance I'll never know - it's backfired every time. He should just keep his mouth shut.

He might put Akpo at the back and leave Bullen out of the way up front. We normally do things like that.

couglan should never have been sold. It has just left us with very few defensive options, this has been highlighted in every game. WE NEED DEFENSIVE COVER NOW
