DEFENDER Mark Reynolds is enjoying life north of the border and says he has no regrets over leaving Sheffield Wednesday.

The 25-year-old rejoined Aberdeen in August on a season long-loan deal after being frozen out at Hillsborough.

Motherwell-born Reynolds spent the second half of last season at Pittodrie, having featured on just six occasions for the Owls last season.

Brought in by ex-Wednesday boss Alan Irvine in January 2011, Reynolds has struggled to command a regular first-team place under either Gary Megson or Dave Jones and his hopes of breaking into the starting line-up suffered a major blow when Jones swooped to sign Joe Mattock during the close season following promotion to the Championship.

Reynolds, regarded as a left-back, has been deployed regularly as a centre-half by the Scottish Premier League outfit. He has hinted he would be interested in a permanent transfer to Pittodrie.

“There is certainly the option to make it a permanent move to Aberdeen but it is completely out of my hands,” he conceded.

“It is up to the guys upstairs who run the clubs and who make the decisions. I am contracted to Wednesday for another year after this one so there’s nothing I can really do. I can’t force the issue.”

Reynolds, who has started 14 times for the Owls, added: “The reason I came back here [Aberdeen] is because I enjoyed it so much last season.

“This season I am convinced that Aberdeen are poised to do something good with the squad we have here.”
