Fry Tips Hammers' Sears For Owls

Fry Tips Hammers' Sears For Owls

Peterborough United's Barry Fry has given the biggest indication yet that Wednesday are set to sign West Ham hot shot Freddie Sears on loan.

Owls boss Brian Laws has kept tight-lipped over his signings for the new season, but the young Hammers talent has been rumoured to be moving to Hillsborough for 2009-10.

And Fry has today revealed that Sears is set for a move to Wednesday after turning down the chance to play for the Posh next season.

On missing out on Sears, Fry told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph: 'He made it clear he was keen to come here, but West Ham have blocked the move and told him he has to go to Sheffield Wednesday.'

Laws has hinted that he was looking at a season long loan for a Premier League striker.

And it looks as though Sears is his man, but the club have yet to make any announcement regarding a move.

It's a done deal if this is to be believed!! Not a bad scoring record for the reserves - 25 in 24 games. Could be one that comes through during a season with us! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Sears

If Barry Fry (the owner of Peterborough United) say he pefers Peterborough to us, then it must be true. After all, what vested interest has he got in making any claims to the contrary? To me this looks like a great signing. Hopefully it will be confirmed very soon!

diffrent kettle of fish, smith was totally unproven, this kid has the ability no question just needs time on the pitch. plus the youth set up at west ham is one of the best

why does it say on that wikipedia link that Sears has agreed to join Barnsley on loan? who's to be believed?! I live down south (unfortunately) and are mates with a fair few hammers, who dont rate him in prem but think he'll do a good job in championship. Let's just hope its for us and not the dingles!

I don't know, is this kid the answer to our striking needs? If he is I'll accept that I'm wrong but I'd rather see us pursue a player who would actually want to play for and sign for Wednesday. That and he looks about 12.
