Tyson rumours hot up for Owls

Tyson rumours hot up for Owls

Rumours linking Wednesday with a summer swoop for Nottingham Forest striker Nathan Tyson have stepped up a gear this week.

The hitman has turned down a new contract offer at the City Ground and is looking for a new club to start to the 2011-12 campaign with.

Wednesday are understood to be amongst the clubs interested, with Championship, Premier League and SPL clubs also reported to be keen on his services.

The former Wycombe Wanderers frontman will be keen to play at the highest level possible but the option of regular first team football at Hillsborough could prove an advantage for the 29-year-old.

Tyson will also know Owls boss Gary Megson well. Megson took him to Forest from Wycombe in 2005 and will know if the qualities he can offer to his side.

This would be a cracking signing, just cant see him coming to us think he could play at Championship level and other clubs in that league will be in compeition for his signature however with Megson and Manderic in charge anythings possible. My fingers are firmly crossed.

Another quality player Megson would be mad to not look at who is currently out of contract is Craig Davies at Chesterfield. Prolific last season in League 2 and his actual play in front of goal is leathel well worth a look. I know many may say... fair point but can he do it in League 1. I say but well worth a gamble if its even classed as a gamble !! UP THE OWLS !!

Agree with Carbone's Padawan completly, not a hope in hell. Can't afford what forest probably offered him and he won't drop back down to league 1, not even worth mentioning it anymore.

Tyson, Koumas etc are the kind of players I would LIKE to see us linked with but I am a realist and know that these are the kind of players who wont want to be linked with us! If it happens great, if not its not the end of the world? Would rather take a guaranteed punt on someone a bit younger and who isnt likely to bail ship at the first opportunity!
Owls That!

We havent got a hope in hell of getting Nathan Tyson.If he has rejected a new contract at Forest then I assume that he will be signing for another Championship side (probably Derby).Love to see him in the famous blue & white shirt,but lets face it.Its not gonna happen.
