Onome Departs

21 year old striker Onome Sodje, who former Reds boss Simon Davey claimed was a key player in his new “development squad” has left Oakwell after making just one substitute appearance.

Sodje was signed on a free transfer in the summer, from York City where he had scored 24 goals in 56 starts, and was hailed by Davey as one for the future.

Despite having a decent pre-season, he made just appearance, as a second half sub in the first home game of the season against Coventry, before being loaned out by Mark Robins to Oxford in November. He made five appearances for the Blue Square Premier promotion chasers, scoring in the 1-1 draw at Salisbury in December, but has now decided to try his fortunes abroad.

The youngest of the five Sodje’s playing in England, Onome has moved on a free transfer to Slovakian Corgon Liga side FC Senica, who play in the top flight in Slovakia.
