Posh join Owls in chase for Green

Posh join Owls in chase for Green

Wednesday will face competition for the signature of highly-rated Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Danny Green, with Peterborough United joining the race for his services.

Owls boss Gary Megson is keen to bring the 22-year-old to Hillsborough this summer and it's understood Wednesday had a bid rejected by the Daggers at the end of last week.

The Owls are expected to swoop with a second, improved, bid for the talented winger but will have to mount an attractive package if they're to get the former Bishop's Stortford man.

Peterborough United, promoted to the npower Championship, have also made a bid for Green, according to

The lure of Championship football is something Wednesday can't offer for next season, but at least with Milan Mandaric now at the helm they can compete with the wage demands, and a transfer fee.

Green is expected to leave the Daggers this summer and Wednesday know his qualities all too well - he scored from the spot when the Daggers held the Owls to a 1-1 draw last season.

He could attract bids from elsewhere, with his performances last season catching the attention of a number of clubs on top of Wednesday and Posh.

We might be struggling on this one if you think about Peterborough's location and them being in the championship, Hope I am wrong as like the look of him

That's the end of that then but it's our own fault if we can't attract players because of the league we are in!

It depends on what the lad wants, he can go and play in the championship with Peterboro with 6,ooo fans watching him, or play for us, just how ambitious is the lad, if its between the two we should get him, if anybody else comes sniffing from the championship like Forest or Leeds then we may have a problem, but not Peterboro surely.

Not necessarily Ecco Owl, it's not just about the club you're signing for. Does he want to pit his wits against West Ham United or Wycombe Wanderers?!

The last thing that we need to be doing is living in the past... we have to face the realities of where we are now so that we can get back to that glory. That said, ecco makes a very good point. We may be league one, we may not be pulling the crowds were were even a few years ago, but our players still get to play before more fans than a lot of Championship clubs do, and in a pretty fine stadium to boot! Plus, from a young players perspective, we've got the management with the money in place to really take this team to the top. Under the old board I wouldn't have taken a job in the concession stand, but despite our problems this past season, all the sings are pointing up for Wednesday. And if Championship vs. League One is a deal breaker for some players, there's no use sweating bullets over it because there's nothing we can do about that this year; rather have a lad with the ambition to go up and go further, anyway.

Good point Colorado Owl, I'd still like to bet that given the chance, most players would rather play in The Championship than League One. Based on this seasons average attendances, there will only be us, United, Charlton and Huddersfield that would amass over 12,000 capacity gates which is not very appealing for League One. Base that against 17 teams in The Championship that would attract an average gate of over 15,000 (most of those over 20,000) and it's a no-brainer really. I'm only stating the common sense stuff but don't get me wrong, I'd love him to sign for us over a Championship club!
06/06/2011 16:58:00
Most players would take Championship or higher almost every time. But we can offer him the chance of first team football. He might not be a regular in the Posh side. Whether or not we get him, I hope we do, it's a good sign that we're going for players that are young and in form. He'd be a good signing.
06/06/2011 17:27:00
Crystal Palace and Ipswich Town are in for him now,so thats the end of that.Another good player we will miss out on.
