Spurr Rumours Continue

Spurr Rumours Continue

First Blackburn and Boro, now Villa. The Sunday Mirror reports that Martin O'Neill is interested in our very own Tommy Spurr.

One of the Owls' top performers this season, 21 year old Spurr will naturally be catching the eye of managers with a defensive headache and bit of money to spend.

According to the Mirror's Michael Morgan, a two million pound summer swoop is in the offing, due to the relative failure of Nicky Shorey to hold a first team place down at Villa (Morgan's theory, not mine).

It's an easy story to write though, and hard to refute: the Owls a bit skint, naturally their better players will be for sale, O'Neill likes young Brits in his team.. we've heard it all before, and we'll no doubt hear it again.

But with Championship safety all but secured and news of investment on the horizon, Brian Laws may find it a little easier than usual to resist overtures from the Premiership and elsewhere.

I think you'll find alot of the transfer talk is Spurr's agent putting his client about in the press. There are two options in my opinion. Either Spurr signs a new and improved contract at Sheff Wed, or interest in him is for real and he is looking for a move at the end of the season. Will have to wait and see how this one works out.

i think villa is the more likely option, u look at blackburn they have stephen warnock so y would they want spurr, and boro have their captain pogatetz at left back, whereas villa have shorey (poor) and a returning bouma who is over the other side of the hill and o'neill does bum his english players

Tommy has a year left on his current deal, I think.
