Spurr expected to depart Wednesday

Spurr expected to depart Wednesday

Owls defender Tommy Spurr is expected to leave Hillsborough for pastures new this summer.

The full-back's future has been up in the air since the arrival of Gary Megson as manager and the need to rebuild the squad ahead of a promotion push next season.

And Spurr, who came through the Owls Academy, could be one of the casualties this summer. Milan Mandaric, the Owls chairman, has revealed to BBC Radio Sheffield that Spurr will be on the move this close season.

The Dewsbury-born defender has been linked with a move to Yorkshire rivals Leeds United and Steel City rivals Sheffield United, while Nottingham Forest have also been mentioned as being interested in his services.

The 23-year-old has made over 200 appearances in the famous blue and white stripes and became somewhat of a fans' favourite at Hillsborough, despite coming in for some criticism last season.

Hope we get some good money for him. We've spent years developing him....

He wore the shirt with pride and always give full commitment. I would have thought we would be better realeasing Jones, who on the last few showings has been hopeless. Thank-you Tommy for your commitment and loyalty. We will always remeber your wonder goals!

What a joke! Tommy Spurr is leaving. How can anyone on this planet think this is good? Jones and Reynolds are worse than Spurr. How is it he is being linked with Leeds and Forest but Can't get in our team? Yet again Megson is making a clueless decision.

Well let's see who Megson brings in to replace him before we criticise too much. In all honesty Spurr hasn't kicked on in the last couple of seasons and he really hasn't been linked with anyone decent in the past 12 months or so, these are past links.

So we let a player go to teams in the championship, seems like a great re-building exercise
06/06/2011 11:34:00
shocking decision for me Tommy has been one of the only one of our players that actually care about the shirt and the fans - spot on 10goalpayne what a great re-building process lets hope the decisions get better from here on in??

We'll get no more than £250,000 for Tommy if we're lucky. He's been a non-entity for us, an under-performing league 1 side. So how much would a left-back acting as a squad player fetch with all the above in mind? Not much is the answer. I for one am gutted. I always liked Spurr and I do actually rate him. Shame.
