Purse ready to help Owls defence

Sheffield Wednesday defender Darren Purse
Purse was released by Cardiff City at the end of the season

New Sheffield Wednesday signing Darren Purse is hoping some of his experience rubs off on the club's young defenders.

Centre-back Purse, 32, will compete for a first-team place with Richard Wood, Mark Beevers and Richard Hinds.

Purse told BBC Radio Sheffield: "You look at the centre-halves they've got at the moment, all three are young.

"Usually you don't come into your own until you are in your late 20s. Hopefully I can pass on some of that experience to the younger defenders."
