Sturrock Targets Big Dunc

Owls boss Paul Sturrock has admitted an interest in former Everton striker Duncan Ferguson, who is currently without a team after leaving Goodison Park at the end of last season.

Sturrock spent time with Ferguson while at Dundee United, and told BBC Radio Sheffield he would be interested in bringing the 34-year-old to Hillsborough.

He said: 'He's an exceptional talent although he had injury problems last year. I'm not writing him off, I'm sure he'll find a Premiership home.'

Ferguson had injury problems last season but is still likely to attract a high amount of interest from clubs in the Premiership, Championship and the SPL.

The former Scottish International moved to Dundee United in 1990 and spent three years there, making 75 league appearances and netting 28 goals along the way.

He then made a big money move to Glasgow Rangers but only made eight league appearances for the Ibrox club before being loaned out to Everton and eventually making a permanent move for 4 million in 1994.

Ferguson has made over 150 appearances for the Toffees in two stints at the Merseyside club. He's bagged over 60 goals during his time there. He also moved to Newcastle United in-between his two Everton stints, where he made 24 appearances and scoring eight goals.

Would be a great signing and it looks like we have the advantage of Sturrock working with him before. Surely some Premiership teams will be after him though, maybe even the blunts!

Past it? He's still been in Evertons team this season, only injury has kept him out. He'd be a fantastic signing and would be a boost to the club as a whole.

Only injury has kept him out, whilst he would bring a physical presence we lack up front, his style has taken its toll, how long would he spend on the physio's bench, how often would he be suspended (he has a terrible temper you know) and how many goals would he contribute, a big signing but a bigger gamble.

Tough one. Id love to take a gamble on him because Im sure he'd make a hell of a difference when he's on the pitch. Its just injuries again. We've had enough of injuries over the past few seasons

If he came as a fit player who could play 30 games for us he would be a great signing.but the fact is he's not.we're not big enough to have big time charlies picking up thousands for minimum contribution.
