Heffernan set for Kilmarnock move

Heffernan set for Kilmarnock move

Wednesday striker Paul Heffernan is set for a move to SPL side Kilmarnock, according to reports.

The former Doncaster Rovers hitman has failed to make a starting position at Hillsborough his own since making the move last summer and is deemed surplus to requirements at S6.

The 29-year-old still has one year left on his contract at Wednesday but that's set to be cancelled to allow him a move to Rugby Park, according to

Heffernan was signed by Alan Irvine from Doncaster last summer but made just three league starts in the blue and white stripes last term, with 14 league appearances coming from the bench, scoring three goals.

Owls boss Gary Megson is looking to rebuild his squad for a push for promotion next season and is keen for players to leave Hillsborough as well as arrive.

Killie are keen to bag his services and a deal could well be done in the coming days.

Wasn't given a fair chance by Irvine or Megson. Always came off bench and gave his best so what else was there he could do? He wanted to play for us which is something we can't say about most. Good luck Heff.

absolutely gutted, gave 110% whenever he played and scored a few from coming off bench he jus didnt get a chance :(

If it means we get a proven goalscorer, then I can't complain. Agree with SW93 & SG94 though - he just wasn't given a chance. Good luck to him.

Can not understand this at all. One of the most honest players at our club. He was given a chance and usally scored when he came on. Sad to see him leave.

Good luck to him - surprised no fee involved!

How do you know we'll get a proven goalscorer? Heft got 3 of bench and has proven many times he is a Proven goal scorer at this level. Plus he makes things happen. Clinton Morrison was suppose to be a proven goalscorer and hes a flop. So you never know Heff proved he could play how do we know another signing could flop when we knew we had a player in Heff.

heff was never given a fair go in my oppinion one of the only player we have that looked like he wanted to play for us other than weaver and could not have done more than he did with what he was given. good luck heff hope you bang them in up there

I have to agree with all that's already said, especially SheffWed93. When I read this the first thing I thought of was Clinton Morrison. Out of the two there's no doubt who I'd rather take for a promotion challenge next year. I'm sure Heff will go on and show what he never had the chance to show with us.

ditto above comments, good look heff
14/06/2011 16:44:00
good luck heff, though i have to disagree with much of what is written on here, even in the games he DID play, he was very average, a few glimpses of quality but nothing there really. if you think we will get promotion with "honest" players then youre in for a shock, we would have a team of JOC's.
