Whelan: Off The List, Please!

Whelan: Off The List, Please!

The latest poll on Vital Sheffield Wednesday asked whether or not midfielder Glenn Whelan should remain on the Owls transfer list - we now have the results!

And a whopping 85 per cent of Vital Sheffield Wednesday users called for the young Republic of Ireland U21 midfielder to be taken off the Owls transfer list after an impressive start to the new Championship campaign.

The view is in stark contrast to Owls fans' opinions of the former Manchester City product towards the end of last season when he struggled to make Paul Sturrock's starting eleven - and 15 per cent of you still believe he should be transfer-listed.

Of course, Paul Sturrock is desperate for some much-needed cash to boost his transfer kitty when the January transfer window comes around and the Owls are already blessed with a number of central midfielders including Yoann Folly, Steve Adams, Kenny Lunt and Burton O'Brien. The emergence of youngster Sean McAllister will also add competition for players and it may seem like Whelan is the obvious choice to go.

But Whelan has made a big impression on the Hillsborough faithful at the start of the new campaign, making himself almost undroppable from the starting line-up at the present time. His partnership with Folly in the middle of the park certainly gave the Owls fans and boss alike some food for thought.

And it looks as though Whelan will get his chance alongside the Frenchman as soon as he's back from injury. It seems unlikely that the Owls boss will keep the youngster on the transfer-list for much longer should his progression continue into the season. Now the transfer window has closed he has more time to impress Paul Sturrock - or maybe return to the poor form that saw him dropped from the team last term.

The Dubliner has made 91 starts for the Owls since former boss Chris Turner brought him to Hillsborough in the summer of 2004. He's netted six goals during his two year spell at S6 and has had previous loan spells with Bury while at Manchester City.

Strange situation at the moment, I wonder what Sturrock would do if a bid came in? Take him off I say!

I feel if we got a bid og £500k+ we would have no option but to sell

I'd sell for that! But I don't think we'd get anywhere near that at the moment, especially as he's on the transfer list.
