On-loan defender Darren O'Dea has confirmed he would like to seal a permanent move to Leeds United in the summer.

Thanks very nice but he's not good enough. No real pace and not comfortable on the ball

Agree0 Disagree0

I bet he would. League one for him next year though, not good enough for Championship/Prem

Agree0 Disagree0

I would love to see what a pre-season under Warnock would do for Darren.

Most will admit, bar the freak result, Darren has ton a hell of a lot better under Warnock. Maybe that pre-season could be a difference maker too.

At 25 years of age, and being out of contract at Celtic it may be worth bringing Darren into the squad, unless the money and options are there to bring in much better players.

Totally agree. not good enough no better than the players we actually own. thanks for your offer darren but no thanks

Similar to my thoughts, picks up too many needless bookings and not been a consistant performer.

we shall see what nw thinks in summer

Agree0 Disagree0

I honestly think that we would need a better defender than him to go up.

Having said that however, I don't think that there is really anyone else available of that ability (or higher) for an affordable sum of money, therefore, I think that he would be a good player to get.

Ultimately, we are not in a position where quality is readily available (we need PL cash to get a good enough team in one summer), therefore what will get us promoted is good management. Thats what Norwich, Blackpool, QPR, Swansea etc. did. None of them had more than two or three players which were particularly outstanding in the Championship.

Under Warnock, O'Dea has been a completely different player, and if he can continue that next season and get some consistency (which only time will tell), then for me there's no reason why we can't get promoted next season with Lees and O'Dea in CB.

Agree0 Disagree0

I like o'dea.. international.. experienced.. LEES is fragile... i think o'dea has been great and chips in with a few goals. we need a great squad and he can only add. obrien bromby and bruce and kisnobo to go

Agree0 Disagree0

Squad player. A good squad player but that is all. We need someone better. We need to sign 2 quality central defenders in the summer. Also like to see another LB and RB. And a goalkeeper.

Agree0 Disagree0

Noooo, we have a good goal keeper, in lonergan and lees will prove he's good, he's still young, and white is also very good, we need a new right back and a quality CB to partner lees.

Agree0 Disagree0

He,s always looked good playing for the republic when asked of him, if they could get a decent centre back to partner him it would be great

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd rather sign him than have Anton Ferdinand join and swallow up loads of cash in wages. He is a different player under NW but if NW decides he's for the scrap heap then clearly he doesn't think he can improve any more. Time will tell.

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree with the last 3 posts
a bit of sense.
Need RB a better CH than we currently have and see if how' Lees & Odea improve
