Brian Laws revealed today he will be able to spend any cash gained by player sales on reinforcing the team - a good situation to be in, according to the Owls boss.
Richard Wood (who, lest we forget, asked to leave last season and appears to be assessing his worth in the current marketplace) and Tommy Spurr are mulling over new deals at the moment. Whilst Laws would love the pair to stay, he gave a clear indication of his intent in saying 'No player is invincible or irreplaceable. If someone moves on, they move on.'
He told the Sheffield Telegraph: 'There are offers on the table to them and there are ongoing negotiations which I expect to continue through the summer.'
'There is no need to go chasing because they are under contract for another year. I'm not overly concerned. Equally, you don't want it to drag on. We don't want to sell and we don't have to sell. But we all know that there is a price for everybody if it is very good money.'
The majority of the Owls faithful regard Spurr as a favourite son, see him as the future of the club and would implore Laws to retain him at all costs.. feelings about Wood are more ambivalent following the Coventry City episode, and the centre back berth could be filled by Purse plus Hinds or Beevers, with Buxton (and the bonus cash from any sale) as cover.
Only time will tell, but Brian Laws evidently will not now be backed into a corner as contract discussions continue.
