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.
