Owls Receive Bullen Inquiries

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed that he's received a number of offers from Scottish clubs for Owls club captain Lee Bullen.

Laws told the experienced defender that he could move away from Hillsborough on loan should he want regular first-team football, and a deal could well be in place for the Scot to return to his homeland in January.

Bullen, who captained Wednesday to League One Play-Off glory and has also played in all eleven positions for the club, has fallen down the pecking order at S6 with the arrival of Michael Johnson and Richard Hinds, and the emergence of youngster Mark Beevers.

And Laws has revealed that he'll wait and see what offers come his way to allow Bullen to decide his fate when the transfer window re-opens in January.

'Lee is a good pro; I know he would prefer to be playing first-team football, though he has committed himself to the cause, and that's nice to see,' Laws told the Sheffield Star.

'He's getting to the stage where he'll be thinking about the future, especially with the likes of Mark Beevers coming through.

'One or two clubs in Scotland have made inquiries and are going to come back to us in January. We'll just have to wait and see.'

The 36-year-old is one of a number of Wednesday players to be made available for loan, including Yoann Folly, Kenny Lunt and Peter Gilbert.

How many other players have played in every position including goalkeeper?
BluesyOwl
Time to move on, without a doubt, but what a great and loyal player. I expect he'll leave with some good memories of his time with us too.
SuperOwls
If he stays in Sheffield after his career he'll never have to buy a pint again.
YoungBeevers
what can you say bullen is an owls legend his loyalty an professionism are second to none we wish him well for the future where ever that may be
beverley owl
Why let him go when he can provide cover in all positions?,Might need him before the seasons over.........
brinsworthowl
I totaly agree with all the above comments, when he was in his prime he was a solid leader totaly commited to the club. But time moves on and the club does too but he will always be respcted for the years hes given us. Good luck to him where ever his future takes him.

What an excellent player he has been for the club, unfortunately for Lee it is a season to far, and the old legs have gone. Thanks for the memories and good luck in the future

Looks like he will prob go, but its a shame for any club to lose their captain.

feel really sori for bullen but its time to say our good byes those old legs have gone. but wen u see him he is 100% an owl and commited to the cause. who can forget that great day at cardiff , that man held us all together and we came out the otherside . for him to lift the play off trophy and secure promotion it ment as much to him as it did to us. THANKS A MILLION LEE we wish you all the best. and one day u neva know you mite be the manager we are looking for. cheers

>Why let him go when he can provide cover in all positions? Because we have better cover for all positions with legs that move and such, Hinds and Watson can cover CB, FB and DM, we have Esajas, Small, JJ and BOB to cover LM/RM and we would have to be completely desperate to consider Bullen cover for attack......
Placebo
The only reason i can see him staying is to work with the young ones, but i suppose that BL wants shut so that is one player of the wage bill.
will it ever happen
