Easter Surprise For Wednesday?

Billy Sharp, Kenwyne Jones and now Wycombe Wanderers' Jermaine Easter - the rumour mill is well and truly under way at Hillsborough.

Welsh international Easter is the latest name to be linked with a summer move to Hillsborough after the 25-year-old enjoyed a successful campaign with the League Two side last term.

The former Stockport and Cambridge hitman bagged 26 goals in all competitions last season and attracted the interest of Premiership duo Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City thanks to some superb displays which helped Wanderers to the semi-finals of the League Cup.

And now the Owls have entered the race for his signature according to reports, with Championship rivals West Brom, Cardiff City and Crystal Palace also showing interest.

And it's thought the striker will command a fee in excess of 675,000 with Blues boss Paul Lambert insisting he won't sit down at the negotiating table until the fee is met by any interested parties.

Lambert said: 'At this moment in time there have been no bids for him and I want it to stay that way.

'He has done brilliantly for us and it would have to be a massive offer for us to even listen. Nathan Tyson left here for 675,000 after scoring all those goals and it would have to be the equivalent again.'

But Easter's representatives SEM have revealed the hitman will be in no rush to decide his fate.

'At this moment Jermaine is enjoying a break,' an SEM spokesman told skysports.com.

'We are not talking with anyone about Jermaine and he is happy with life at Wycombe but you never know what is going to happen in the future.'

It will be a very bad surprise if we end up singing him!

He's not bad for the price though when you compare him to other pkayers we're after

He'd do the job at championship level, but I'm not so sure about premiership. But, he did manage to put one past Chelsea in that cup game against wycombe??? Definitely shouldn't be considered a main target, but if Macleans going we do need another striker.

Kenwyne jones any day for me from those 3!!!
FUTURES BLUE N WHITE
I have also heard Robbie Fowler has been added to this list, nice if it was true, but cant see some how!

Kenwyne love it to happen, but not a chance. His next move will be to the premership. Sharp maybe. This Easter guy isn't the kind of player we should go for, we need a proven championship goal scorer. Whites you need to stop beliving the rumours of owlstalk, we couldn't afford Fowlers left foot.
duds
great player
JoshOwl
oviously i would prefer sharpy.
JoshOwl
no wait, scrap that, i want super keywne.

Easter has been touted as a prem prospect before, would be a very decent signing for the Owls, although I agree that Kenwyne is heading for the prem, maybe not just yet though!
BomBom
Whats saying that not one of them do actually arrive?
