Hearts reject Owls' McGowan bid

Hearts reject Owls' McGowan bid

Hearts have rejected an offer from Wednesday for Australian defender Ryan McGowan, according to The Scotsman.

The Owls are reported to have had a verbal offer of £300,000 turned down for the 22-year-old and the SPL club are said to be looking for double that amount to let one of their key first team players leave.

McGowan, who received his first call-up to the full Australian squad this week, is out of contract with the Edinburgh club at the end of the season but Hearts are keen to offer the defender a new deal.

The Australian cemented his first place in the Hearts first team last season and the Tynecastle club are eager to hold on to him.

But he could sign a pre-contract elsewhere in January and leave for nothing unless Hearts tie him to a new contract.

Owls boss Dave Jones has already bolstered his squad with a host of new defenders, including Anthony Gardner, Joe Mattock and Kieran Lee, for the new season but it still seemingly keen to add another stopper.

Gardner in for Rob Jones, Mattock for Reynolds, Lee for Otsemobor. We haven't replaced Batth yet, and as he seems likely to get a chance at Wolves now we're going to have to look elsewhere. Can't say I've heard of this Aussie but a 22yr old and a full international, he's just the type we ought to be going for.
