Notts County In For Owls' Wood

Big-spending League Two side Notts County are reported to have made an inquiry into Wednesday's transfer-listed centre-back Richard Wood.

The Owls Academy product was slapped on the transfer list by boss Brian Laws after failing to agree a new contract at Hillsborough.

Ipswich Town, Coventry City and Sheffield United are all thought to be interested in his services.

But Sven-Goran Eriksson's County are thought to be the latest club interested in Woody, according to the Sheffield Star, as they look to continue building their squad for a push up the Football League.

The Owls announced Wood was demanding too much money for a new contract at S6 before transfer listing their former captain.

But the Meadow Lane club shouldn't have such problems in giving Wood what he wants, wage wise, should he opt for a switch to County.

I agree with Heslip - he goes to County then it just shows he's only thinking about money. Nothing at all to do with ambition.....

Skeggy Steve Bull stayed with Wolves all his career when he could have earned more elsewhere. Dirk Kuyt has set up his own charity to help those less fortunate. There are plenty of players who have shwn a bit more loyalty than Wood. Tudgay would have undoubtedly been paid more had he insisted on a move to Burnley. You are completely wrong to call all players money grabbers.

i agree cliffandj, there are plenty of honest players who put football, family, etc ahead of money. Cristiano Ronaldo and Nicolas Anelka for example ;-)

So now Cliff&J thinks that all footballers are in it because the love the game and it has completely nothing to do with money. I think someone needs to come back down to the land of reality here !

Skeggy once again you haven't actually read what I posted. But that is very much the norm for you. I actually said that not all of them are money grabbers...obviously some are but not all. If you are going to comment on my posts at least have the courtesy to read them properly!

What difference does it make, he is no longer part of the plan so he can go anywhere. What is he earning? 3k a week? If someone offered to at a minimum double your wages for doing exactly the same thing would you take the job? Of course you would. No disrespect to Wood but he isn't going to cut the mustard in the Premier league and he is probably realistic enough to know this so he should maximise his earnings now. Far better players have left before and better ones will go in future so why worry!
