It's perhaps not so surprising that Wednesday have turned down an offer from Plymouth for Glenn Whelan.
Hmm, 'offer'.. does Paul Sturrock really believe that less than the 250k originally reported is a serious bid for the mainstay of the Owls midfield, a Republic of Ireland U21 international, and a player who he had previously placed on the transfer list?
Owls boss Brian Laws was right to label the bid as sub-standard when he said 'We have turned down a derisory offer from Plymouth for the services of Glenn Whelan. When I saw the offer, I thought they had spelt Yoann Folly's name wrong.' Not very complimentary towards Yoann, Brian, but we see what you're saying.
Laws put it better on Radio Sheffield's 'Football Heaven' by saying if Plymouth were to come back with an offer around the 250k mark for Yoann Folly, then Wednesday might take it more seriously.
Now we hear from the glorious soaraway Sun that Bolton and Derby are 'fighting for Whelan's signature'. Let's hope they've got more money to spend than the Pilgrims, eh?
Other move news: the Owls promising third choice 19 year old keeper Richard O'Donnell has signed a three month loan deal at our League 2 neighbours Rotherham, following his spell at Unibond League Buxton. The Millers have Steve McCann out for the remainder of the season with an injured shoulder and Andy Warrington is their only keeper in the current squad with first-team experience.
In addition: the 'Bully to Scotland' and 'Frankie to Everton' rumours just won't go away. Read our old reports on these prospective 'moves', they'll be just as accurate as anything else! Brian Laws considers it to be 'paper talk'. Laws is also putting pressure on Southend to make a decision on the Leon Clarke situation, one way or the other, and says there is interest from other League One clubs in the ex-Wolves striker.
