Laws Hopeful On Turner Deal

Laws Hopeful On Turner Deal

Wednesday boss Brian Laws hasn't given up hope of signing on-loan Everton youngster Iain Turner for next season - and is looking at a possible season-long loan swoop.

The Scottish stopper has been a huge hit with Owls fans since arriving at the club and talk from Laws suggested the club would be looking to make the move a permanent one come the summer.

But Everton boss David Moyes played down talk of a move away from Goodison Park for the highly-rated youngster by stating that he isn't for sale and is a key part of the club's future.

But that hasn't ruled out a possible season-long loan swoop for the stopper, with Owls boss Brian Laws a big fan of the youngster.

'We know we're not able to buy Iain; we're trying to secure a long-term loan, and will be having further discussions with Everton,' Laws told the Sheffield Star.

'They rate him very highly; he's not for sale to anybody; we full understand that, and we have other targets as well.'

The 23-year-old has been a big hit with the Owls faithful - with Wednesday remaining unbeaten since his arrival at S6 seven games ago.

His form has also attracted the interest of former loan club Crystal Palace, while Turner was called up the Scottish national side for the first time last month.

Laws managed to extend Turner's loan deal for a further month, but it's unlikely he will remain in place for the final two games of the season - with Everton requiring his services due to Tim Howard being unable to play against Manchester United, the club he's on loan from.

It would be a good deal to get him here on a season-long loan. Don't want to mess about like last year though

A season long loan without a return clause would be great.. don't fancy him hopping back to Goodison at a second's notice. We need someone permanent between the sticks!
