Jeffers In Owls' Frame

Jeffers In Owls' Frame

Blackburn Rovers striker Francis Jeffers is the latest name linked with a move to Hillsborough after Owls boss Brian Laws revealed he was discussing a move with a Premiership striker.

Celtic striker Derek Riordan has also been in the frame for the Owls' number nine shirt, but with Laws revealing his hopes for a striker from the Premiership, all eyes are on the former Everton and Arsenal 'fox in the box'.

Jeffers could have been lining up against Wednesday on Saturday in the colours of Ipswich Town, but Jim Magilton was forced to pull out of a deal for their loan star due to wage demands.

And with Wednesday having similar problems at bringing a new striker to the club, the wage demands of the Everton youth product could also prove a problem for Brian Laws as he looks to add a new attacking option before the weekend.

why would you bother, hes done nothing for years, he should be paying clubs to play, to get his career back on track, sign him on loan its a write off, sign him maybe it could work.

Can't say I'd be pleased to see him. He really hasn't done anything for soooo long. Need someone with a better goalscoring pedigree.

His nickname was changed to "pox in the box" many years ago - case closed. Play Small or Johnson up front and keep the money until something else turns up. It went from Fowler and Kluivert to Horsfield and Jeffers. Laws should just admit defeat, this debacle has dragged on too long.
