Owls reject Barnsley offer for Beevers

Owls reject Barnsley offer for Beevers

Wednesday are understood to have turned down an offer of around £200,000 from Barnsley for defender Mark Beevers.

New Reds boss Keith Hill is looking for a replacement for Jason Shackell, who has left Oakwell for Derby County, and Barnsley-born Beevers is seemingly on his hit list.

But Owls boss Gary Megson rates the 21-year-old highly and is keen to hold on to the centre-back, especially for the low price being offered by the Tykes.

Hill could return with a higher offer for Beevers but Wednesday, under the chairmanship of Milan Mandaric, are no under no pressure to sell their better players.

Wednesday have already signed the experienced Rob Jones for next season and Megson could opt to pair Beevers with the former Scunthorpe United man next season, especially if no deal is possible for young Wolves centre-back Danny Batth.

Selling Beevers would be a huge mistake. Especially for such a derisory amount. Hang on to this lad.

haha £200,000 dingles are having a laugh, no 21 year old that has played at championship level, has lots of games under his belt and and is a solid CB is worth £200,000...£800,000 for beevers at the very least!!!!

i'd sell him for £800k. he hasn't progressed very much in the last 2 years and he is out of position loads. i hope megson can get more from him if he stays

I would except £500,000 myself, if we only got £200,000 for Spurr, can't see how Beevers can be worth much more, for me they have both gone backwards, but if it's Barnsley asking, make it a round million.

If teams (Championship ones at that) are looking to buy players like Spurr and Beevers from us and no interest is shown in Reynolds and Morrison then surely we'd be mad not to keep hold of them? I would potentially let Spurr go because LB is not his preferred position and we have adequate cover on the left side of CB but certainly not Beevers!

would keep hold of beevers as i believe with a decent partner that he hasn't got to worry about where they are i think mistakes would be alot fewer
