'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Former Leeds man back in Yorkshire

Former Leeds United midfielder David Prutton has signed for Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield Wednesday on a free transfer.

Prutton has signed for the Owls from Swindon Town who were relegated to League Two at the end of the season.

The 29 year old was released by Leeds in January 2010 after almost three years at the club, making over 70 appearances.

The former Nottingham Forest and Southampton player earned the nickname 'Jesus` during his time at Elland Road because of his long hair, sent an open letter to Leeds fans after his departure expressing his thanks.

"The friendships I have made, the memories I hold dear and the sheer pleasure of being a Leeds player will stay with me for a long time.
"Leeds United gets under your skin (as I`m sure all you avid fans know) and there will be a part of me that will always be Leeds.
"I am proud to have played a part in bridging the gap between an uncertain past and a no doubt glorious future.
"Leeds fans are loud, loyal and passionate. Make no mistake, you are the lifeblood of the club and forever will be.
"You were always fantastic to me and I hold that in my heart as I move on.
"Thanks for everything, David Prutton (aka Jesus)."


The popular midfielder joined Colchester United for the remainder of the season before signing for Swindon on a two-year deal last summer.

Prutton made over 40 appearances for the Wiltshire club last season but couldn`t help them slipping into the bottom division.

His arrival at Hillsborough will give him the chance to line up against Leeds United for the first time since his departure from Elland Road.

I'm a Wednesday fan, what is Prutton's strengths and weaknesses?

He has a never say die attitude and will play anywhere if asked, weakness he's not the quickest

Not getting any younger, always tried his best but did lack a bit of quality. He was well thought of by the Leeds fans because he was always willing to give 100%. He will get a fantastic reception from the Leeds fans for the friendly.
