Laws: Cash Not Too Sharp

Laws: Cash Not Too Sharp

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has admitted he would be 'first in line' for Scunthorpe hitman Billy Sharp - but has insisted the price tag would rule out any summer bid.

The former Sheffield United academy product has been linked with a move to the blue and white half of Sheffield since Laws made the move to take the reins at S6 from Scunthorpe in November.

But in Sunday's Star Green Un', Laws said that although he would be 'first in line' to bid for Sharp, and that he would bring him to Hillsborough tomorrow, he wouldn't be able to afford the young striker in the summer.

The Owls boss has played a major part in Sharp's development, after taking him to Glanford Park for a fee of £100,000 from Bramall Lane back in the summer of 2005 year where the striker has gone on to score 47 goals in 73 league starts for the Iron.

But the hitman has attracted a host of admirers this season, with some even saying he could play as high as the Premiership, and with Scunthorpe looking hot favourites for promotion his price could rocket.

There could still be hope for Wednesday fans, with the possibility of extra investment come the summer to bolster their squad with extra transfer funds and wages - but any possible deal is still a way off.

Lack of ambition !!!! We would rather spend a few quid on a blades reject who can't get a game at Watford who is always injured, that the hottest prospect in the lower leagues.
