Central defender's time is up...
Neil Warnock has called time on Darren O'Dea's Leeds United career.
The Elland Road boss spoke with the on-loan defender following his sending off at Blackpool on Tuesday and has told him he doesn't figure in his future plans.
The Celtic man has made 42 appearances for the club this season, but a red card at Blackpool in midweek has cost him his second suspension in the space of less than a month
"I'm disappointed not just in sending off, but in the other suspension as well," said the boss. "I have decided we won't be signing him for next season. I've had chat with him, and I'm going to get let him have a break before he goes and plays in the European Championships in the summer.
"We thank him for what he's done but I do feel it's time to move on in that area. He's had good games and average ones, but one or two people have come into my reckoning now that I'm looking for and hopefully we can tie those players up now over the next few months."
While O'Dea won't figure again this season, Billy Paynter and Robbie Rogers are also ruled out of the games against Cardiff City and Leicester City.
Paynter, who scored twice in the 4-1 win against Peterborough last weekend, and American midfielder Rogers, are both sidelined with injury.
"Billy will miss the rest of the season," confirmed the boss. "His Achilles is very sore, and I think we just have to confirm it, but Robbie has a little crack in his ankle as well."
