Jeffers Transfer Talk Hots Up

Jeffers Transfer Talk Hots Up

Rumours linking Wednesday's former Arsenal and Everton striker Francis Jeffers have picked up this week, with Notts County reportedly interested in his services.

The Owls' 'fox in the box' was slapped on the transfer list and hit with a fine by boss Brian Laws after his sending-off in Wednesday's Carling Cup defeat to Port Vale.

And although Laws hasn't completely closed the door on the one-time England international, it looks like Jeffers will be heading out of Hillsborough shortly.

Links with big-spenders Notts County have surfaced recently, and they've come up again in the national press this week, with the League Two outfit keen to bolster their attacking options.

Any move would have to be an initial loan deal, with the transfer window closed, with a permanent move possible in January.

Michael Mifsud has already reportedly turned down the chance to move to Nottingham, paving the way for a possible swoop for out-of-favour Jeffers.

Most Owls fans will be keeping their fingers crossed that this is true...

Think we ought to do a BOGOF deal with him. You buy Jeffers, you get Clarke free.

Here we go with the Clarke bashing again. He has been performing much better and is just returning from injury - give the lad a break!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jeffers on the other hand can get the first available bus out of Hillsborough

Mighty, are you on drugs? Why would we want to let Leon go when he's been in some of the best form of his life and looks good post-injury? Come off the crack and start talking sense man!

He's had enough chances. He is garbage. He came on on friday and just looked lost as he always does. Dont think he hardly got a touch. I think we did great on Friday and as a team we're really getting somewhere, but we've still got 2 or 3 weak links and he is one of them.

Leon was great towards end of last season, and I think he just found it hard on friday with the pace of the game, but like you all said he is just on his way back from 6 weeks out

Ok Ok looks like I'm on my own with that comment. Seems I'm seeing a different Leon to everyone else. Give me Varney, Tudgay and Sodge any day. Flippin eck dont get this much grief on the blunts site LOL. Might make a good quarter back though, what you think US. What if we knock 5p of every litre of petrol with the BOGOF offer?
