Brunt Signing Massive

The latest poll on Vital Sheffield Wednesday asked fans whether getting Chris Brunt tied to a new contract would be the biggest signing of the summer, and the results are in!

A whopping 90 per cent of Vital users felt that getting the Northern Ireland international penned to a new deal would indeed be the biggest signing of the summer for Brian Laws - Billy Sharp or no Billy Sharp.

Brunty has been linked with a move away from Hillsborough this summer thanks to his superb performances in the blue and white shirt which helped Wednesday to their highest finish since relegation from the Premiership last season.

And with just a year left on his contract the Owls would be playing a dangerous game hanging on to their prize asset, and risk losing him for nothing at the end of the 2007/08 season.

But Owls boss Brian Laws is acting quickly to get Brunt tied to a new contract, having had preliminary discussions with the winger over a new deal at S6.

Its all gone quiet on that front, but with the Owls gaffer back from holiday this week and the squad back in pre-season training in the next few weeks, it seems all could well be sorted out on Brunt's future before the end of the month.

Only ten per cent felt that getting Brunt to agree a new contract wouldn't be the biggest signing of the season.

The former Middlesbrough youth product, brought to the club under former boss Chris Turner, had been very hit and miss before the arrival of Laws at the club last November.

You either loved him, or you hated him. Well, hate is always a strong word, but you know what I mean.

And with still a year left to run on his contract, some Owls fans clearly felt that bringing new players in to the club to freshen things up would be more important than offering the youngster a new deal at S6.
