Darryl Lachman explains why he moved to Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday

Lachman signed for Sheffield Wednesday after leaving FC Twente.

Wednesday completed a deal with Lachman earlier this week, and the central defender has told SoccerNews why he wanted to move away from FC Twente in the Netherlands.

The 25-year-old said: “The Championship is a big league where the level is high and large numbers of people at the games. I am really looking forward to it. There is a lot that has happened at FC Twente. You have to have respect for your coach, but I did not agree with the choices made ​​by [Twente head coach] Alfred Schreuder.”

The Curacao international defender completed the transfer earlier this week, and becomes another step in Wednesday’s plan to guarantee a quick return to the Premier League.

He is a solid signing, having impressed in the Eredivise, but found himself struggling in the Twente first-team during the 2014/15 season. He made just 23 appearances for Twente, missing the last 11 games of the season without being selected for matchday squads.

His arrival at Wednesday should see him immediately stake his place in the starting XI, having proven his top flight ability, and he has admitted that moving to the Championship came about due to the decisions of Twente head coach Schreuder.

Should he show the same kind of form as he did during his time with Twente, Wednesday have just completed a signing of real intent.
