City Eye Owls' Grant

Premier League giant spenders Manchester City are keeping tabs on Wednesday stopper Lee Grant, according to media reports today.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Mark Hughes' men are looking at Grant to replace Joe Hart, who's leaving Eastlands to join Birmingham City.

The Owls' number one has been subject of interest from a number of big clubs after his fine form between the sticks last season.

But he pledged his future to Brian Laws by agreeing a new deal at Hillsborough recently, and would command a big fee for any clubs wanting his services.

Manchester United and Newcastle United are amongst the other clubs believed to have shown interest in the former Derby County stopper.

But it's likely Grant will be warming the bench with Shay Given as City's current number one - something the former England under-21 player won't be too keen about.

Brian needs to keep the spine of the team together if we're going to push on from last season!! as its city could price him at 30million!!!!

absolutely, if the lure of filthy wonga is too much, if Granty wants to go, if Wednesday have to sell, let's milk 'em for every penny.

keep hearing 1.5m banded around, what the hell is that about?! i'd want 5 at least before we even considered it. Is it me or do our players always get undervalued when theyre linked with moves like Spurr and Beevers to West Ham for 3m combined. But i will probably cry if Grant leaves in all seriousness
wesp
ok but can we have joe hart & 1.5 mil then we have a deal
HorburyOwl
its not often a wednesday player gets linked with a club who bid for kaka not too long ago! Only seel him if its 5m + a player or two
Norman
hes got him self back as one of the best out side the PREM dont think he would fancy sitting on the bench for city not even for 50g a week ..if we did sell would hope we get at least 5mill and then get murphy from scunny on the cheap he has stalled on a new deal with them
dublin owl
5m and Robiniho and he's yours!!

you have to be realistic like us. i personally think you are well over valuing grant. if someone came in with a 1.5m offer it would be accepted. i personally would value him at the 2m mark but remember your debt. just like we have to reduce our wage bill. 5m?? jesus we would be lucky to get that each for the 2 kyles - and they are absolute pearls. deffinate future england players and if they were at premiership clubs now i'm certain both would be playing tonight for england without a shadow of a doubt. + no club sells players as cheap as we do its really really soul destroying!!
bladesforlife1889
thanks for that bfl but it was pure garbage as always, realistic like you? every clubs in debt, you just put kyle walker in the same sentence the kids played less than 10 games, and saying they'd both be playing for england tonight is possibly the most comical thing you've ever said
wesp
as always when you try to comment fairly you get insulted. told you smigg m8. regards to the 2 kyles of course they would be playing for england if they were both at premiership clubs - don't talk out of ya ass wesp. these 2 young guns are the best 2 players to surface out of sheffield in the last 50 years!! loyalties aside and start to be realistic. same goes for spurr if he were at a prem club he would be in contention for international honours also
bladesforlife1889
kyle walker would be in the england team over glen johnson? as i said hes played a handful of senior games will you stop saying you've got to be realistic then spouting rubbish like that, even saying Naughton would be in for Coles almost as ridiculous, at least he'll be a future international though
wesp
capello shuffles the pack you utter numpty but isn't going to look into the championship for players. get your head from up you biassed backside
bladesforlife1889
When has he?so he'd shuffle it so much that he'd bypass Bridge, Neville, Mancienne, Gibbs, Cranie, Gardner, Ryan Taylor, Steven Taylor and Hunt to pick 2 young players who play for you? lol whos biased moonpig?
wesp
Pigforlife these two players will never get in the england side while playing for you lot, that is a fact. They will need to get in the premiership team, and that's something that will never happen down at bumhole lane, your simply not good enough, just ask BURNLEY.
