'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Grant's City Move 'Rubbish'

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has poured cold water over rumours linking Lee Grant with a move to Manchester City by claiming the reports are 'rubbish'.

Premier League City were rumoured to be pondering the services of the former England under-21 man for 1.5 million as competition for regular number one Shay Given.

But Grant was arguably the Owls' player of the season last term, and Laws will see the stopper as one of his key men for a promotion push in 2009-10.

And he told the Sheffield Star: 'This is a load of rubbish.'

The former Derby County man penned a new deal to stay at S6 following the end of last season.

His form throughout last term saw the keeper linked with a number of high profile clubs including Manchester United and Newcastle United.

And Laws told The Star that Grant 'is settled' at S6 and 'is not for sale'.

Of course, every player has his price, as has been shown before at Hillsborough with the sale of Chris Brunt and Madjid Bougherra in recent seasons.

But Owls fans can rest assured that Grant will be taking to the Hillsborough pitch in the Owls' number one jersey next season, unless an unbelievable offer comes our way.

WOOD TO THE LANE???????????????????????
bladesforlife1889
i think we've been here before bfl, please don't embarrass yourself with your ridiculous and idiotic comments.
ozzietheowl
i reckon it may pull off. he wants a move, he would slot in at the lane perfectly and he's losed all respect of the wendy fans so...... just praying he's not a replacement for killa though. killa, wood and the 2 kyles would be awsome.
bladesforlife1889
well just have to wait and see what happens as i said on your site BFL im not bothered if he goes no class as a man not that great a footballler
aussie2005
yeh i know what you mean aussie you have to question his commitment and obviouslly the fans will be frustrated. wonder if laws knew this that's why he signed purse as a direct replacement? got to admit it though at 750k he's a bloody good buy and still only 23 remember. still reckon webber maybe part of the deal as you need a striker and webber would suit your style of play. mind you i say you need a striker but tudgay and a fit sodje will score goals in this leage - more than i can say about our pathetic front line at the moment.
bladesforlife1889
Whats Wood done now??? If he's gobbing off again and moaning he can go as far as i'm concerened! Better have Purse beside Beevers with a bit of experience than Wood in what could be a good season? If he goes to United then obviously he hasnt seen whats happened to Bromby, Quinn and the other full back who's name I cant even be bothered to remember!!
Waddles Wing Wizardy
Woods done nothing but go on holiday without signing contract extension, same as Spurr, but obviously because of what happened last year hes been linked with half the championship because of delay, Woods important, Spurrs essential.
wesp
I agree with wesp, Wood is an important part of the team. if we are going to push for the play off's then we need to keep our better players. PFL has a point he is only 23 and can be a little inmature sometimes, think thats why purse has come in.
Bognor_Owl
i'm looking forward to our defence not giving any short change to rival strikers, cue Purse jokes...
Norman
spurr and beevers are essential to you but can you keep hold of them? the reported 750k for wood would be an excellent buy due to his age. WWW - quinn was ok for us and made derby history, geary was superb but injuries got the better of him and bromby is mr reliable whan called upon so you 3 signings from the poor side have done relatively well. free transter for quinn and sold him for 700k was a good bit of busniness also. wood would be a very good signing for us. just imagine wood, killa, naughton and walker - so so so strong!! with morgan and naysmith to also call upon
bladesforlife1889
you wont get woody and naughton will be off. so so weak.
ozzietheowl
So, so, so, so, DELUDED yet AGAIN PFL
