Owls boss Paul Sturrock has ended his interest in bringing former Everton and Newcastle United striker Duncan Ferguson to Hillsborough on a pay-as-you-play offer.
Vital Sheffield Wednesday revealed Ferguson was high on Paul Sturrock's wanted list after being released from his time at Goodison Park at the end of last season.
Sturrock told BBC Radio Sheffield: '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.'
But it seems the interest has ended after the Scot wanted to secure a minimum 12-month contract - with the Owls only wanting to offer a pay-as-you-play deal.
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 Owls' Championship rivals Norwich City are also said to be keen on his signature.
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.
