Premier League Club Bid For Tudgay

Premier League Club Bid For Tudgay

Wednesday boss Alan Irvine has revealed that a Premier League club, thought to be Blackpool, have had a bid turned down for Owls striker Marcus Tudgay.

The Owls boss has confirmed that the bid fell 'well short' of the club's valuation for Tudgay, who has been linked with moves away from Hillsborough following the club's relegation from the Championship last season.

Vital understands that Premier League newcomers Blackpool are the club to have made the bid for the former Derby County man.

But it looks like the Seasiders will have to dramatically up their bid if they want to get their man, with Irvine insisting that the Owls are not a 'selling club'.

'Yeah, there was one phone call, one club showing an interest in Marcus but they were well short of anything that would tempt us to do anything with Marcus,' Irvine told the official SWFC website.

'I think everybody looked at the Lee Grant situation and thought Sheffield Wednesday are a selling club now, we're not. We're not going to do anything like that lightly. We're not in a position where we have to sell now so it'll take very, very good offers to get our best players.'

He continued: 'It was a Premier League club who made the enquiry but they didn't make a Premier League club's offer so it's the end of that as far as I'm concerned.'

Vital understands that Ian Holloway's men may also have made an enquiry as to the availability of Wednesday winger Jermaine Johnson, but neither club have confirmed any interest from the Bloomfield Road club for the Jamaican.

Sounds like Blackpool have offered absolute peanuts for Tudgay though.

He payed absolute peanuts last season after Burnley planted the seed in his head so I wouldnt be surprised if this did the same? If he starts against D&R he might just be thinking "I could be starting against Wigan this time next week in the Premier League!"

I can't see how Blackpool won't get spanked left, right and centre this season.

Blackpool will be awful this year but I am sure will give it a go. They will go down won't ever go up again so going there would be a silly move.

Went Saturday, Tudgay was crap before he got injured and went off. Does not seem interested. Mind you, he wasnt on his own. AI says wait till the real ball comes out, on Saturdays showing, they must be saving something special because that was a performance well short of what we should expect.

I think I see a different player. He has one of the best first touches ive seen at hillsborough and if he had a good strike partner for a season like he did with Sodje for about 2 games he is at least a 20 goal striker. If Blackpool buy him they will get a bargain.
