Foxes Hunt Whelan

Foxes Hunt Whelan

Wednesday have already seen a number of high profile players leave the club since last season, and another could be on his way if a former Owls legend has his way.

Glenn Whelan could soon be following Steve Maclean and Chris Brunt out of Hillsborough after Sunday's The People reported the Irish midfielder is a target of new Leicester City boss Gary Megson.

The former Republic of Ireland under-21 international is out of contract in South Yorkshire at the end of the season and Wednesday could well cash in of their midfield maestro rather than risk losing him for next to nothing at the end of the season.

And Megson knows Whelan only too well, having frequented Hillsborough a number of times as a fan whilst being out of work following being sacked as manager of Nottingham Forest.

The former Wednesday man, whose father Don is also a legend at S6, could well see Whelan as the man to bolster the Foxes midfield and shoot them up the table after an indifferent start which saw Martin Allen sacked after just a number of games in charge.

Whelan is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal at Wednesday and has already been linked with a number of clubs including Premiership Reading and Wednesday's Championship rivals Stoke City.

The midfielder arrived at Hillsborough under Chris Turner's reign as Owls boss and impressed during his first season at Wednesday which saw the Owls promoted from League One, and has since gone on to bag the Owls' player-of-the-season gong last term.

Whenever we let a goal in, lose a game or fail to score........its allen out, allen out. Im sick of it, we have got the players capable of winning matches!!!!!!!! for gods sake dave allen is not in the starting 11, stop pointing the finger at him. We should be saying Bullen out, Bullen out and Grant out, Grant out, after all they made the cock ups.

unfortunately the only reason we are forced to depend on the likes of hinds, grant and bullen is because allen and laws have sold off the likes of bougherra and replaced them with the aformentioned rammle, so unfortunately the buck stops with the management

No im not dave allen, but i know he see's the club as a business. It might be hard for you to understand mick66owl, but dave allen is an owl. He replaced Maclean with Jeffers, Brunt with Esajas, and Wood returned as Bougghera departed. The proposed takeover took everyone by shock as it collapsed and thats why Brunt and Maclean left!!! But 3m for Brunt, What a deal!
