Baggies Make Brunt Bid

Baggies Make Brunt Bid

Championship rivals West Brom have made a bid for Wednesday winger Chris Brunt according to Sky Sports.

Brunt's future at Hillsborough has been under the spotlight in recent weeks after contract negotiations with the Northern Irish international broke down, with the winger out of contract at the end of next season.

But although Wednesday have insisted the Middlesbrough youth product will remain at the club to help them on the pitch next season, a big-money offer for the winger could see him exit the Hillsborough doors sooner rather than later.

Fulham, West Ham, Wigan and Manchester City have all shown interested in Brunt, with the youngster destined for a move to the Premiership thanks to a superb season domestically with the Owls and internationally with his country.

West Brom have already lost a number of key players from last season, including tricky midfielder Jason Koumas, and could see Brunt as the ideal replacement following his superb performances in the two victories over Tony Mowbray's men last term.

It is a bit odd, but if it's a big money offer, Wednesday can't really afford to turn it down.

True but we've ONLY got Small and Johnson for wings. If they get injured then it's Tudgay back on the wing. If Brunt goes then he's making it clear it's just about money because he could sign a 4 year deal and West Brom not get promoted - their team is looking shaky following so many departures.

Ellington does interest me.......If a deal for brunt leaving can be struck it'd be 3m region. I believe we have the right manager to take us forward but our squad seems very thin. We are desperate for an experienced centerback, an exciting left winger (if brunt goes), and a pacey goal grabbing striker.......The 3 players I would like is Dejan Stefanovic, Wayne Routledge and the selfish striker who would get goals ........Francis Jeffers!!!

It would have to be at least £3M now with future bonuses and a sell on fee. Other wise they can Foxtrot Oscar.

I like brunt and no doubt he is an excellent player, when hes good hes very good, but a good 40% of the matches i saw last season he was anonymous at best. if he wants out cash in on him and bring in Dejan, jeffers and a decent creative midfielder (not sure who tho!!!!)

Although i would hate to see him leave it now looks imposible any contract will ever be sorted out for brunty so if someones willing to give a lump sum plus bonuses and maybe even another player then that is going to be very hard for swfc to turn down.Elington would be a good addition to the squad and with small finding his form god forbid things might actaully be getting better at hillsborough.

I think our problem is not cash coming in. After all, we've apparently got 2m to spend on a striker but we can't afford the wages of a 2m striker. Brunt is probably still on league 1 wages so if he goes we might have 3m but we won't have any wages to pay the player!!
