Vancouver Whitecaps snap up Andy O'Brien

Andy O'Brien has left Leeds United by mutual consent, and in doing so joined up with the Vancouver Whitecaps in Canada.

The 33-year-old experienced defender played 38 times for the Whites, scoring on two occasions. O'Brien initially joined the club on loan in October 2010.

The former Bolton man then made his deal permanent in January 2011, but never really settled in after the move. O'Brien had his own personal problems with depression, which former manager Simon Grayson didn't handle too well. I like most fans, will remember O'Brien's performance against Bradford City, where he was subbed for an abysmal performance against a League Two side.

I wish O'Brien well, but quite frankly I'm pleased to see the back of him. It's money freed up from the wage bill and another incapable player out of the squad. Hopefully now, Warnock can use the extra wages to good use.
