Sharp To Decide Owls Fate

Scunthorpe United hitman Billy Sharp is to sit down with Irons boss Nigel Adkins to decide on his future at Glanford Park amid an offer from the Owls this week.

The leading scorer in League One helped Scunthorpe to promotion last season and will be in the same league as his former manager Brian Laws next term - but it hasn't stopped Laws making a near 1.5m offer for the striker.

And Iron boss Nigel Adkins is all set to sit down with his star man and see where he wants to play his football next term amid huge speculation about the fromer Sheffield United trainee's future.

'I think this bid will not be accepted but we have to sit down with Billy and see what he wants to do,' Adkins told BBC Radio Sheffield.

The 21-year-old is already said to have attracted a number of bids around the 2 million mark for his services, but with Laws' links with Scunthorpe still in tact and just 12 months remaining on his contract, the Glanford Park club will have to decide whether to cash in on their star man or run the risk of letting him leave for free next summer.

Sharp was signed by United from Sheffield United back in August 2005 for a fee of 100,000 after failing to impress Blades boss Neil Warnock during his time at Bramall Lane.
