Laws Ends Adebola Chase

Laws Ends Adebola Chase

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has admitted his interest in signing Bristol City's Dele Adebola but has refused to get into 'bidding wars' for the striker.

The Owls have long been linked with the experienced hitman, with his contract set to expire at Ashton Gate this summer and Bristol unlikely to offer him a new deal.

But although Adebola will fall into Wednesday's price range - a free transfer - he's thought to have out-priced himself for a move to Hillsborough with his wage demands.

Championship rivals Nottingham Forest are also said to be interested in Adebola and could well be the favourites for his signature.

Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield that Wednesday were interested in adding him to their 2009-10 squad but have since dropped their interest.

Cripes - we cant afford to compete for the signature of Dele Adebola... I guess that rules out our unanimous suggestion/fantasy of going for Leroy Lita. Wonder where he'll end up?? More importantly, I wonder which striker we'll end up with. Does anyone know who that target was when Lawsy went abroad a few weeks ago to check on him?

Thank God! A bidding war for an overrated, over the hill third division target man! Maybe that does rule us out for Lita, still nothing ventrured, nothing gained, go on BL make everyones day.

its all relative though adebola wants a 2 year contract and more than 10k a week rumoured- thats a joke and if we did offer that im sure every owls fan myself included would think 'whats gone off here'' but 10k a week to a 24 striker who's capable of 20 a season rather than 7 or 8 may be different

so gladd that were not going for him-couldnt agree more with ya robc, over the hill-definatley and i think that if anybody in the championship would to make a move for him it would be very foolish one.

It doesnt necessarily mean we cant afford him, just that were not willing to pay him what hes asking for. Didnt want him anyway.
