Tudgay Signs New Owls Deal

Tudgay Signs New Owls Deal

Marcus Tudgay has ended speculation linking him with a move away from Hillsborough by signing a new four-year deal with Wednesday.

The striker was heavily linked with a move to Premier League side Burnley, with the Clarets having a £1.5 million bid rejected for his services.

But Tudgay has finally ended the speculation by committing his future to the Owls with a new four year deal.

The former Derby hitman has revealed he spoke 'extensively' with Owls boss Brian Laws and chairman Lee Strafford over his future.

And the talks resulted in him penning a new deal with the belief that Wednesday could achieve promotion to the top flight sooner rather than later.

Tudgay was the PFA Fans' Championnship Player of the Year last season, and also took a number of club awards including player of the year and goal of the season.

So, one year with Burnleh, or four with us. No contest. I guess Darryl Powell did his job but, Marcus, he needs to be fired.

brilliant news

this is excellent news. I have no doubt that this time last year we would have taken the money. It does seem that the new regime are showing much more ambition and we can look forward to a brighter future. Since France decided on the dark side, I have been feeling a bit depressed about our prospects, but this is a real indication that we are on the right road at last!

There's only one team in Sheffield showing ambition and keeping their assets, well done BL and LS for not caving in and flogging off the family silver at the first sign of any interest like them other jokers in the City. Well done Tudders as well, i never heard you say you wanted to leave and good on you for doing what you said you'd do a few months ago when you agreed you'd sign a new contract, glad there is still some integrity left in todays footballers, now change your agent!!!

Thank God for that!!! I'm relieved that he's signed, but it seemed to take for ever!

Very pleased with that but a bit surprised too. I wonder what Strafford said to convince him to turn down the Premiership now? As for the agent, they are all the same I guess you either have one or you don't. Personally I'd love to send someone else in to batter my boss into submission over my pay!
