'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kav Set For Owls Return

Sunderland boss Roy Keane has revealed that experienced midfielder Graham Kavanagh could be set for the Stadium of Light exit door - with Wednesday his favoured destination.

The former Republic of Ireland international enjoyed a productive month's stay at Hillsborough recently but has recalled to the Premiership club to try and make his mark in Wearside after recovering from injury.

But Black Cats' boss Keane has come out and said that he could well let the former Cardiff City and Stoke man make another loan move elsewhere after being deemed surplus to requirements - and the news is sure to alert Owls' boss Brian Laws, who is keen for Kav to return to S6.

'Kav enjoyed his games at Sheffield Wednesday but there have been several other clubs in touch about him since,' Keane told the Sunderland Echo.

'There has been more interest in Kav and I will probably sit down with him next week to talk it through. I also spoke to him last week about the situation.

'It's a difficult one because as much as I want to keep him I know he wants to play football, and Kav is not the only one in that situation here. As much as I have to look after the club, I have to be fair to the players.'

Kavanagh's performances in the blue and white stripes, which helped start the turnaround in the Owls' season, will have attracted interest from other Championship clubs.

And Laws has already admitted that although he would still love to bring the midfielder back to Wednesday, he will have to offload some of his current club, including the listed Kenny Lunt, Lee Bullen, Yoann Folly and Peter Gilbert, to bring his man back to S6.

Laws told the Sheffield Star: 'I've still got get to get players out before I can bring anybody else in, to ease the finances.

'At the moment Kavanagh is not an urgent issue, but I'd like him back; he's a quality player who can only improve our side.'

I agree - get him back! With Whelan looking like going in January and Folly out of favour we need some strength in the middle of the park....though someone should tell him he should leave corners and free kicks to someone else!!!

lunt is as good as gone, crewe will take him cos one of there main men has been injured, so thatll leave a space for Kavanagh. i dont think whelan will go. i just pray that come january, unlike last year, we show some ambition, if we had been given money to replace bougherra we would be bottom of the premiership now!!!
