Darren Purse signs for Sheff Weds

Last updated : 17 May 2009 By Michael Morris
He's become the first summer signing of Sheffield Wednesday.

Owls boss Brian Laws said

"My main priority this summer is to sign players with quality and experience. In Darren Purse we have secured the services of someone with both of those qualities in abundance."

"He has experience of getting promoted from this division and of playing at the very top level but most importantly he is a leader on the pitch. We already have some excellent young players at Sheffield Wednesday and Darren will help bring out the best in the other defenders around him."

Purse will finalise his contract at Hillsborough on July 1st when Wednesday strart pre season training.

Good luck to Darren who, on Friday evening, completed his City duties when he was at Ninian Park meeting the kit sponsors in a presentation evening.
