Jabba's Comments

Signed at the start of the 1999-2000 season, Danny spent a year in the reserves and probably realises that his prospects for Leeds will at best be as cover behind our existing set of centre backs - Lucas Radebe, Jon Woodgate, Michael Duberry, Danny Mills and now Rio Ferdinand. He made his debut against Barcelona in the Nou Camp, coming on in the last minute as Lucas Radebe was carried off with concussion, and has since made several appearances as all the rest of the central defenders battled for a place on the treatment table rather than the field. At 6'4", he's tall and looks pretty confident on the ball, but he needs to focus more on the defensive aspects of his game in the short term to be of most use to us.

In 2001-02 he picked up an injury in a pre-season game and failed to return to the side. When his contract expired in May 2002, he stayed on in England and was snapped up by Walsall, with Sheffield Wednesday also interested. He's been a regular for Walsall in 2002/03 and has managed to regain his place in the national side.

Billy McClure says: watched him for Waitakere in NZ - fantastic player - will become a great, injuries allowing. NZ's best player.

Amanda Clow-Hewer says: Is he married to Sandra Edge?
