Bougherra Race Hots Up

Bougherra Race Hots Up

The Owls have been joined by a host of Premiership and Championship clubs all desperate to sign highly-rated former Crewe Alexandre defender Madjid Bougherra.

Vital Sheffield Wednesday revealed Paul Sturrock's interest in the 23-year-old last month, and Wednesday have now been joined by Ipswich Town, Leeds United, Stoke City, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers and city rivals Sheffield United for his signature.

The Algerian defender spent a successful loan spell at Championship club Crewe Alexandra towards the end of the season, but his efforts weren't enough to stop the Railwaymen being relegated to League One.

Bougherra currently has one year left on his contract at French second division side Gueugnon but is keen to play his football in England next season. His success with Crewe means Gueugnon will be looking for a six-figure sum for the International.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has expressed his desire to sign five players during the summer, and a central defender may be high on his priority list following the release of former Ipswich Town man Drissa Diallo last week.

Remember to log on to Vital Sheffield Wednesday this summer for all the latest Wednesday transfer news - including the deal with Madjid Bougherra.

If all those teams are after him, I don't think we have much of a chance!

Nor do I, but its only speculation! Stoke shouldnt be a problem, or Ipswich really. We're done for if a Prem club comes in though!
