Wednesday captain Darren Purse has left the club by mutual consent and is expected to sign for npower Championship side Millwall.

The Owls have confirmed today on the official club website that the defender, who made 71 appearances for the club during his time at S6, has played his last game for the club.

The statement reads: ‘Sheffield Wednesday can confirm that defender Darren Purse has left the club by mutual consent.’

It continued: ‘Sheffield Wednesday would like to thank Darren for his services and wish him the best of luck for the future.’

Purse, who joined Wednesday on a free transfer in the summer of 2009 following a spell at Cardiff City, is expected to move to Millwall, who he supported as a boy.

Reports linked the experienced centre-back with a move to the London club today and it looks set to become a reality.
