Wednesday stalwart Lee Bullen has revealed that he’ll talk to clubs about leaving S6 – but would rather stay an Owl an earn a new contract at Hillsborough given the choice.

The 36-year-old Scot has been a key part of the Owls’ squad since his arrival from north of the border but could now see his future in the famous blue and white stripes numbered after boss Brian Laws revealed he could well send a number of players out of the club on loan.

And the jack-of-all-trades could well be one of those to depart S6, after failing to impress in his appearances for Wednesday so far this season.

But Bullen insists that although he’ll listen to offers from other clubs, he’d prefer to stay at S6 and earn a new contract with the club.

‘It would have to be the right move for me, a club heading in the right direction but at the moment I’ve got nothing to lose at Wednesday,’ he told the Sheffield Star.

‘Sometimes you’ve just got to get a feel for the coach and the club and I’m not going to burn any bridges. I’ll talk to different people, that’s not an issue, but at the moment I can’t see me leaving the club until my contract is up.’

‘Getting a new contract doesn’t look too promising at the moment, but things can change and it was the same under Paul Sturrock, just before Brian Laws took over, and it’s amazing how things can change.

‘Football’s crazy and it can change from one week to the next and you just never know.

‘At the end of the day, if it was my choice, I would prefer to stay at Wednesday and earn another contract and that’s what I’ll be trying to do and if not, then that’s football and I’ll move on.’

The Edinburgh born defender is just five starts away from breaking the 100 barrier in league starts for the Owls, having played in all eleven positions for the Owls during his three and a half year stint at Wednesday.
