Owls Receive Bullen Inquiries

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.

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.

If he stays in Sheffield after his career he'll never have to buy a pint again.

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
