Turner Staying A Toffee

Turner Staying A Toffee

Everton manager David Moyes has rejected claims young stopper Iain Turner will be joining the Owls on a permanent basis next season - claiming he has a big future at the club.

Wednesday boss Brian Laws revealed earlier in the week that he was hopeful of getting the young Scottish international on a permanent deal for the start of next season after impressing in the Owls' number one jersey this term.

But Moyes has revealed that he will return to Goodison Park when his loan deal at S6 expires in a month's time and is likely to be the second choice stopper behind Tim Howard for next season following rumours of Richard Wright leaving the Merseyside club in the summer.

Moyes told the Sheffield Star: 'Iain has done very well. We are very pleased with the reports on him. He has a future with us. He is on loan and will return here.'

Turner's arrival at Hillsborough has helped spark a fine run of form which has seen Wednesday unbeaten and the Scottish stopper earn a call up to the full Scottish national side as a reward for his efforts.

He also enjoyed a loan spell at Championship rivals Crystal Palace earlier in the season, with Peter Taylor also expressing a desire to sign him permanently come the summer.

And the Owls could see the last of Turner in the home game with Coventry City on April 21, with Everton likely to re-call the stopper for the clash with Manchester United the following week - as Tim Howard is unable to play.

Don't worry, we're signing Hartlepool's Number 1! Everything's going to be absolutely fine.
