Rovers close in on Spurr deal

Rovers close in on Spurr deal

Doncaster Rovers are closing in on a deal to sign Wednesday left-back Tommy Spurr, according to reports.

Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll is looking for a new left-back at the Keepmoat Stadium next season and Spurr fits the bill.

The defender would command a fee with one year left on his current deal at S6 but Owls boss Gary Megson is open to offers for the 23-year-old as he looks to rebuild his squad.

Spurr has also been linked with moves to Leeds United and Nottingham Forest but Rovers now seem to be the front runners for his services.

Spurr came through the youth ranks at Hillsborough and got rave reviews after bursting onto the scene in the blue and white.

His progress seemingly came to a half in the last few seasons but Spurr is still seen as a talent who may be better served elsewhere to continue his development.

He still made 33 appearances for the Owls in npower League 1 last term but fell down the pecking order under Megson towards the end of the campaign.

When did things get so bad that Donny was seen as a step up from Wednesday?

Since they play in the championship and we play league one!
Owls That!

Agree with you there Owls That - it's reality. We have to earn the right again for people to want to sign for us over a Championship club.

Unfortunately both Barnsley and Doncaster are now seen as a step up from us. Its sad but the reality is that we are now a average League 1 outfit.We have just got to accept it and work hard to get back into the Championship. Good luck Tommy,always put in a good shift up and down the wing whenever he wore the shirt.

Its nice to see some realists on the site. I think that too often we have all been guilty of thinking "We're Sheffield Wednesday" and maybe this has been part of our problem. Its sad but true, we are a league 1 club and have no right to anything just because of our name, even though I was one of those that thought we would get promoted last season - because we're Sheffield Wednesday and this is league 1!! Lesson learned!
