Spurr Linked With Barnsley

Spurr Linked With Barnsley

The rumour mill is most definitely in full swing - with Owls defender Tommy Spurr this time being linked with a summer move to local rivals Barnsley.

Spurr, who was a wanted man last year with both Q.P.R. and Nottingham Forest thought to be tracking him, but this time it's nearer to home and Mark Robins' Tykes the latest party to be linked with his services.

The Owls Academy product had a season to forget last season, with some poor performances as Wednesday suffered relegation to League One.

But that doesn't seem to have stopped the Tykes showing interest in taking Spurr to Oakwell this summer, according to our sister site Vital Barnsley.

Wednesday are not in a position to turn down decent offers for their more valuable players, with Spurr arguably falling into that bracket despite a poor 2009-10 campaign in the blue and white stripes.

Leeds United have also been rumoured to be chasing the youngster following their promotion to the Championship.

And with Owls boss Alan Irvine targeting a return for Preston's Eddie Nolan, who was on loan at S6 last season, for next season, Spurr could well fall down the pecking order.

wouldn't be surprised to see him leave, but would be very surprised to see him join barnsley.

just hope we get some decent money for him - £1.5 mill at least?

Tries hard but limited quality. Goodbye.

i disagree baldowl - I think he's a talented lad with good work ethic. He had an inconsistant season last season but who didn't in the Wednesday XI? I hope he stays, particularly as he's home-grown talent.

Your probably right Carbone but I'm still sick of all them at the moment - except Lee Grant - star!

i think he'll improve cos he's quite good going forward but defensively he is out of position all the time. but defending can be taught. perhaps we should get a new left back and play Spurr left side of midfield with a cross over with the fullback, a bit like worthington and king used to do

Not a bad suggestion Hirsty's Shinpads, was over for defeat to Coventry last season in Ricoh and he was constantly getting caught. Steve Finnan has just been released by pompey, we could get a right full and a captain in one go if he was interested in league 1 wages. He's played left full in the past aswell.

If he was to go we would get no where near the 1.5million mentioned. We would be lucky to get a third of that. Realisticly we are now a division 3 team. How many players can fetch 1.5 million from this league. Lambert @ Southampton was only 1 million and his a hell of a better player than Tommy.
