Owls Linked With Mulryne

The latest name to be linked with a move to Hillsborough this month is Cardiff City's out of favour midfielder Phil Mulryne.

The Owls were chasing the signature of the Northern Ireland international pre-season, but the 28-year-old opted for a move to Ninian Park instead.

The former-Norwich City midfielder is vastly experienced at this level and is just the type of player Paul Sturrock is looking for to bolster his squad in a bid to consolidate Championship football at S6.

Owls chairman Dave Allen told the Sheffield Star that he wants to build a squad to push on in the Championship next season, and not to be fighting against relegation again.

He said: ''Our wage budget is on a par with those of clubs up to halfway in the table. We didn't expect to be in the top six or bottom six this season, but we want to push on next season, and we'll have to have a wage budget that reflects that.'

Mulryne is thought to be available on a free, so there shouldn't be too many financial problems with the deal. Wages would be the only sticking point, but the Owls have let a number of players go this month, which will have freed up cash for wages.

Mulryne began his career at Manchester United before securing a 500,000 move to Norwich City where he spent nearly seven years. He made 132 league appearances for the Carrow Road club, scoring 18 goals. Mulryne has made only one appearance for the Bluebirds this season.
