Marcus Tudgay's agent came out punching today, in a bid to take the moral high ground over interest from Burnley for the Owls striker.
Powell said to the Yorkshire Post: 'I don't want a slanging match with Sheffield Wednesday - or any other football club - but Marcus Tudgay is my client and I have to give him what I believe is the best advice.
'Like any player, Marcus wants to play in the Premier League. Sheffield Wednesday have been offered a fee in the region of £2m for a player who has just 12 months left on his contract. If that is 'derisory' in this current financial climate or 'unrealistic' for a Championship player moving to a Premier League club, then I don't know anything about transfer fees.'
'When a Premier League club comes in for a player, it changes everything. Marcus is adamant that he wants an opportunity to talk to Burnley and I am sure any other player would feel the same given the same opportunity. As things stand, Marcus is not looking to sign a new contract with Sheffield Wednesday. He is 26 and thinks this might be his one opportunity to play in the Premier League.'
If there's one guaranteed way to burn your bridges, Darryl, you've just done it. Read the signs.. Lee Strafford says Wednesday won't entertain a sale at the current level of interest. You're the one agitating for a transfer.. push it as far as you can, you've obviously got your eye on your commission. How much did Chris Brunt cost West Brom? Come back when you've got a promise of that kind of cash, or Marcus is staying right where he is. In your own words, you don't know anything about transfer fees.
