Owls linked with bid for Roberts

Owls linked with bid for Roberts

Wednesday have today been linked with a £300,000 move for Huddersfield Town midfielder Gary Roberts

Roberts could leave the Galpharm Stadium this summer after he turned down the Terriers' latest offer of a new contract, and the Owls have been rumoured to be amongst the front-runners for his services.

An offer has yet to be confirmed from either club but today's People is reporting that Wednesday boss Gary Megson is about to lodge a 300k offer for the 27-year-old.

Championship clubs Hull City, Brighton and Hove Albion and Southampton have also been linked with the former Ipswich Town man.

Roberts has been one of Town's best performers since his move to the club from Portman Road but Terriers boss Lee Clark is resigned to losing the player this summer or risk losing him on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Well if they turn it down (and they will) we need to go in firmer and with more purpose. Danny Green slipped through the net like this and Roberts is regarded as a better player too!

It doesn't sound like a lot of money but don't forget that not even a lot of Championship clubs are offering fees for players in the current climate. I can also imagine that knowing that Milan has cash that all clubs think they can bump up the price a couple of 100k which means we have to play the game in the opposite direction and be stubborn. But as we can all see, it's worked really well so far...bung em another 100k Milan and get it sorted.

In other news, I like our new kit, looks quality. A return to the mid 90's. Let's hope a few more players than we have currently will be wearing it next season, we're very light on the ground this close to a new season.
