And Let The Rumours Commence...

And Let The Rumours Commence...

Former Owls boss Brian Laws was only appointed manager of Premier League Burnley yesterday - but already the rumours of Wednesday players following him have begun.

With a relatively huge transfer and wage budget to play with at Turf Moor, Laws will no doubt be thinking above the current Wednesday squad, which he built, to help the Clarets survive in the top flight.

But one player still stands out from what's been a so-far failed season at Hillsborough - goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Already the tabloid newspapers are linking the Owls' number one with a move Turf Moor in the January transfer window.

The Mirror is today reporting that the former Derby County stopper could be a £1.5 million target for Laws this month.

The rumour links it with other reports doing the rounds this week that Wednesday boss Alan Irvine must sell some of his current squad in order to bring new players in and save the Owls' campaign.

But Irvine will no doubt know the importance of Grant to the Owls squad, and will be keen to keep the former England under-21 at S6 for the remainder of the season at least.

Still, a tempting offer from Lancashire could well see the stopper make the switch to the top flight, and leave Wednesday with a big gap to fill in double-quick time.

Keep your eyes on Vital Sheffield Wednesday for all the latest transfer rumours in the January transfer window.

I'd take 1.5m for Grant, provided that at least half would go back in the kitty for players

I think that Grant is the one we really need to keep.

Could cash in on Grant get Iain Turner on Loan... He did a very sound job when at Wednesday few seasons back and Irvine obvioulsy knows Moyes well from Everton days. Just a thought. Though I do like Grant.

Lee Grant at the moment is our most important player! Beevers and Tudders can be replaced right away with the players within the squad, lets ride out January and see how it is at the end of the season. Unless Burnley give us the beast on loan!!!

If Grant goes we have *****ed it, unless we can get a decent replacement in like Iain Turner, from Everton, who Irvine will know well. To be honest, i think that he is the best we could do because we ain't going to get no one special in if he Grant does go. But i would be looking for a bit more than £1.5mill for Grant to be honest. By far the best keeper in the Championship.
will it ever happen

What a good idea, lets sell all of our best players. Are they ****ing mad or what ? Its bad enough us struggling at the minute at the bottom of the Championship without pulling a ****ing stunt like this. If this happens, do they really expect the fans to get behind the club like they want to. Madness, utter ****ing madness.
