Owls Rumour Round-Up

Owls Rumour Round-Up

OK, we know you're sick and tired of all the rumours going around at the moment, so we thought we'd sum them all up in one easy-to-read article.

Julian Gray - We've been linked with him since the start of pre-season, and you can't help thinking that if there was any truth, he'd be a replacement for Brunt. So in that respect, I'm hoping it's nothing but a rumour. He won't want to come here to play back-up, and by all accounts he hasn't been too cracking for Birmingham.

Kris Commons - The left-wing moves me on to another player thats been mentioned numerous times after Nottingham Forest failed to get promotion last season. Their star man by all accounts, and capable of playing at a higher level. Maybe Scunthorpe's rivalry with Forest last season will mean Laws has good knowledge of the former Stoke man?

Tommy Miller - Miller is one of a number told by Sunderland boss Roy Keane that he can leave the club following their promotion and is said to be high on Brian Laws' wishlist. Laws is looking in to strengthening the centre of midfield and Miller could be his man.

Steve Watson - Although the pre-season has left little optimism within the Wednesday faithful, the signing of Watson could put a smile back on their faces, in the short term at least. Watson wasn't part of West Brom's plans last season so it's unlikely he will be this, and he enjoyed a superb loan spell at Hillsborough towards the end of last season. Wages could be a sticking point but at the age Watson is, he shouldn't be asking for crazy money.

Billy Sharp - Pretty null and void now after Sheffield United came out and said Sharp is about to join them. Still, Scunthorpe have said they've received no bid from the Blades so it's not over until the fat lady sings...

Kenwyne Jones - Laws looks very keen to add a new striker to his ranks, especially after losing Steve Maclean to Cardiff City, and as with Sharp, has confirmed that Jones is one of a number on his list that he wil pursue further. Southampton have already issued a hands off warning but if the price is right...

Jermaine Easter - A forward that probably isn't in the same bracket in terms of the quality of Sharp and Jones, but who scored goals and impressed last season nonetheless. Add the fact that Wycombe won't be asking crazy money for him, and he's probably the most realistic target out there in terms of strikers.

David Carney - Carney struggled to make an impact originally in England, but has gone on to earn international honours for Australia while playing for Sydney FC, and has since attracted the interest of a number of English clubs including Wednesday. Sydney have played down talk of a move but it'll be hard to keep hold of him if he wants a move back over here, which he does.

Not the distinct lack of defenders that we've been linked with, when we're crying out for, you guessed it, defenders!
