Owls Target Signs For Blades
Wednesday target Ryan France has turned down an offer from the Owls and made a shock switch to rivals Sheffield United today.
The former Hull City man was all set to make a move to S6 permanent after impressing on trial, and in pre-season matches in Malta and at Hartlepool United.
But after receiving a contract offer from the Owls this week, France has turned down the opportunity to play at Hillsborough in favour of a move to Kevin Blackwell's men.
And the move's sure to guarantee the versatile midfielder a tough time when he comes up against Wednesday this season.
It's also thought Plymouth Argyle were interested in the experienced 28-year-old, but Sheffield-born France is set to stay in his hometown with the red and white side of Sheffield.
