Chelsea, Chelsea For Beevers?

Chelsea, Chelsea For Beevers?

Young Wednesday centre-back Mark Beevers has enjoyed a rapid progression at Hillsborough this season, so much so that he's being targeted by Chelsea if today's tabloids are to be believed.

Today's Daily Star is reporting that the Barnsley-born product, who came through the Wednesday youth academy, is tha target of a £1m-raid by Avram Grant's multi-millionaire side at Stamford Bridge.

Former Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock had already predicted great things for the youngster before he even broke on to the first team scene at S6, revealing that Manchester United were keen admirers of the centre-back, and that one day he could well go on to play for England.

But, such is the reliability of the report, they state that Beevers was voted the club's apprentice of the year this season.

He was, as we all know, voted as the Football League Apprentice of the Year earlier this month, something which may well have attracted the interest of Premiership clubs up and down the country.

But despite the Owls' current financial status, it's unlikely that they'll let go of their now-prized possession for the £1m stated in the report, with the youngster recently putting pen to paper on a new deal to keep him at Wednesday.

Not much difference between Beevers and Gareth Bale in my opinion. How much did Bale go to Tottenham for?

personally i wouldn't sell, our future is in the hands of such talent and just like spurr this kid will get better, hope he keeps his feet on the ground cos news like this can be distracting at the very least, if bale was worth 10 mil then beevers value should match this, minimum

Well if we do get relegated i think he will go and for around that price, depending on a takeover that is!!
will it ever happen
11/03/2008 12:19:00
1m is peanuts. and anyways he's not for sale!
11/03/2008 12:43:00
i think we shud smack a 7 million minimum price on his head all other clubs do it but we nether do
11/03/2008 13:16:00
