Brunt: I'm Going Nowhere

Brunt: I'm Going Nowhere

In demand Wednesday winger Chris Brunt has revealed that he's going nowhere if the club don't want to sell him to Wigan, Fulham or any other club this summer.

The Northern Irish international enjoyed a superb 2006/07 campaign which saw him attract the interest of a number of Premiership clubs with his fine performances - with interest continuing in to the close season.

But Brunt, whose deal at S6 expires next summer, is currently in discussions with Owls boss Brian Laws over a new deal with the club and has revealed that he's in no rush to leave Wednesday.

Talking to the Sheffield Star about the offer of a new deal, Brunt said: 'There's nothing sorted yet. Nothing much has happened.

'I've spoken to the gaffer about it; that's about as far as it's gone at the moment. I've got another year left and, unless the club want to sell me, I'll be going nowhere.'

Premiership club Wigan Athletic are one of the clubs rumoured to be making a bid for the winger, with a £2 million bid being reported in the papers, and Latics boss Hutchings has revealed Brunt is a 'possibility'.

'We're building a young side. Look at the likes of Tottenham - they've got all the young, top players. This will take two or three years, it won't happen overnight,' he said.

'Signings don't happen overnight, it can take four or five weeks sometimes. Players are away on holiday now and they want to think about things.

'Chris Brunt is a possibility, but I am not saying yes or no.'

Owls boss Laws is currently away on a well-deserved holiday and isn't due to be back in England until mid-June - probably leaving a few more weeks of speculation over the future of the Owls' star man.

At least he doesn't want to jump ship like Bougherra which is a good thing but we need to get him tied down to this new contract as soon as possible.
