KARLEIGH Osborne has announced on Twitter that he has left Millwall to sign for loan club Bristol City on a permanent basis.

Robins manager Steve Cotterill yesterday revealed the two clubs were close to agreeing an undisclosed fee for the defender.

Osborne, 25, posted on Twitter:

Cotterill said on Friday: "We're right in the throes of sorting out a deal.

"We're 99 per cent down the road and it could get done before the weekend, but if not it'll happen early next week.

"Karleigh will only get better. We’ve had a good chat this morning and he’s obviously decided that he'd like his future to be at Bristol City.

"Millwall have been great. We may have to keep Karleigh on his loan for the weekend just because of timings, but after that the paperwork should go through."

    For me has all of the attributes of a decent centre half for this level, pace, strength, could look after the ball but never had a run of games to nail down the shirt though. Also a player who just wanted to test himself and better himself as a player, the kind of mentality that is needed in some of the top earners at this club... Good luck Karleigh!

    What a difference it makes to see a young lad who didn't exactly get a fair crack of the whip in my opinion, leave the club wishing us all the best rather than having cheap parting shots! Good luck to you Karleigh. I wish you all the very best in your career.

    Probably deserved more of a chance, but I suppose at least the club is offloading one of its many peripheral players. Unfortunately we just seem to replace them with even more mediocre freebies.

    This smacks of Ambler playing manager. I'm assuming here that he's 100% positive that the new manager didn't want him but did want Hoyte.
    Great work Ambler. I salute you.

    Too many people quick to just jump on the ambler band wagon, who here actually has a clue about what goes on? Not many people and more than likely no one would be my guess. Osborne is not up to this level. He can't control a football, his positional play is awful. Nice fella but glad his gone. I think many people just want some one to blame and although he is a prat, ambler is the easy option. Too many divs on here.

      @82wall: We've all got opinions and I respect yours. Having said that, in the routine absence of JB it IS Ambler that runs the show. Our general transfer policy is naive at best. Henry, a Championship footballer with Youth and some talent, albeit spordic, is sold for 250k. How much is his worthy replacement going to cost ? I'm not talking about freebies here. Hoyte signed because we didn't have a get-out clause. Easter signed for the same reason. Harris is on record as saying that he won't interfere with any ins or outs so who is ? Ambler. What other club has this going on? The only way forward is to get in a manager who knows what he's doing both on and off the field and thereby remove Ambler from the transfer policy because currently it's a total embarassment.

        @NICKOLA: Always respect your opinion Nickola but it's not Amblers fault that we have conceded 49 goals this year. As 82 says and I've said before, I don't think many on here have a clue what Ambler's role is in all this and I for one think he has done a lot for Millwall that people choose to forget. When we were making the summer signings and people were getting carried away with our chances for the season the Ambler insults mysteriously died down. Henry wanted to leave and was out of contract at the end of the season so it could be argued that that was good business? I do agree that CEO should have no say in who is bought and sold though, if indeed that is the case?

      @82wall: Agree with most of what you say, especially about Osborne, when I saw him he seemed a bit slow and a 'lump it' merchant. Who knows what goes on at training so if he was showing anything he would have got a chance, especially after the sort of displays our defenders have been putting in

      @82wall: Ambler is the representative of the board of directors - its the board who are clueless not the fans! Plenty of posters on here have questionable views but theres no escaping the fact that Ambler is not a football man and hasnt the foggiest idea on how to run the club we all love!

      @Steve: Fair point if we hadn't signed the Middlesboro waste of space without even seeing if he was any good.

    Shame, was never given a fair chance, and used rather than encouraged, sloppy way of going about running a club. Good luck Karleigh.

    Well, it just keeps getting better by the hour. Looks like the lunatics have finally taken over the asylum!
    Karleigh would of been a quality player for us in league 1 next season.
    All the best Karleigh. I'm sure you'll do alright.

    Good luck for the future. Strange he didn't get more of a look in as we are crying out for a centre half with pace.

    Nevre had the run he needed to show us what he could do, often came into struggling sides and found it diffcult to hit the ground running. I wish him best of luck and am pretty confident that he will develop into a decent player at Championship or Div 1 level.
