The national media have been at it again today, linking Wednesday stopper Lee Grant with a move to Burnley to be re-united with boss Brian Laws at Turf Moor.
It took less than 24 hours for the tabloids to report that Laws was to return to Hillsborough to take some of the club's star players to the Premier League.
It was almost inevitable - it's the same for most managers when they move to a new club - that Laws was linked with Grant and youngsters Mark Beevers and Tommy Spurr, three of the Owls' more valuable assets.
And Laws has stepped up his chase for former England under-21 international Grant, according to reports today.
Of course, these could be rumours that are simply doing the rounds now that it's the weekend.
But the old theory that there's no smoke without fire, could well add some weight to the rumours, if only a little.
During his time at Hillsborough, Grant's top form in between the sticks is already thought to have attracted the attention of clubs such as Manchester United and Birmingham City.
Again, these could well be more rumours that have come around thanks to 'journalists' putting two and two together and coming out with five.
But one thing's for sure, Grant is highly-rated around the country, and his admirers won't come as highly as Laws, who rescued him from his time at Derby County to bring him to S6.
According to reports today, Burnley could well table a bid of £2 million for the stopper.
And although new Owls boss Alan Irvine will be keen to keep Grant at Hillsborough, that sum of money could well tempt Wednesday to sell and bolster in different areas of the pitch in the January transfer window.
It'll have to happen sooner rather than later though, but don't expect this rumour to disappear in the summer, should Grant remain an Owl.
