Burnley Test Owls With Grant Bid

Burnley Test Owls With Grant Bid

Brian Laws' Burnley have made a bid for Wednesday's highly-rated goalkeeper Lee Grant, according to media reports today.

Grant's future has been subject to much speculation this summer and Sky Sports are reporting that the Clarets have tabled a bid for the former England U21 international.

Laws knows Grant well from his time as boss at Hillsborough and may know how good of an offer is required to secure the 27-year-old's services.

The Turf Moor side, relegated from the Premier League last season, have been looking for a new number one throughout the close season.

But Wednesday won't let Grant go lightly, with boss Alan Irvine already revealing that they don't need to sell players ahead of the new campaign.

Grant has also been linked with moves to West Brom and SPL giants Celtic following the Owls' relegation to npower League One.

The stopper hasn't played yet during pre-season and is recovering from an operation to a shoulder injury.

He can if he has the cash. We're not really in a position to reject a 'good' bid

Burnley will return to being a mediocre Championship club now. May sound rich coming from us in League 1, but we'll be back above them before long. A step back IMO
