Owls Target Signs For Blades

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.

it's actually getting to the stage where it's funny now. France isn't even that good. I'd have taken him as a squad player but nothing more. Thanks Kev

BFL, you're the smaller brother with more pocket money, that needs putting back in his place twice a season.
24/07/2009 14:52:00
joke we p*ss about not knowing if we will offer the kid a contract then he ****s off to pig**** lane, and same with a striker problem we will end up with a no hoper from some Latvian 6th division club who couldn’t hit a PIGS arse with a stick on loan for 3 months. As for bluntforlife you KN*ber big brother well mate your are just like big brother **** with no one watching you are a joke pal. You can have France along with that joke Billy Blunt.
