Folly Out, Wallwork In

Early reports from Radio Sheffield indicate transfer activity at S6 involving Yoann Folly and West Brom's Ronnie Wallwork.

Perhaps predictably, French midfielder Folly is moving to Paul Sturrock's Plymouth.. Owls boss Brian Laws' comments earlier in the week become a little clearer now.

30 year old former Manchester United product Wallwork is understood to be at the end of his contract at West Brom. Off and on-field incidents have halted his progression, but he was a consistent performer during 2004-5 and WBA's Player Of The Season. Since Tony Mowbray took over from Bryan Robson, Wallwork's opportunities at The Hawthorns have been limited. He's had loan periods at Bradford, Barnsley, and Huddersfield and now looks to be adding to his collection of Yorkshire clubs by linking up with the Owls.

More details when they come in.

Ronnie Wallwork - had been on loan at Huddersfield so he's obviously going to be top quality.

cant find any mention of a transfer fee coming in for folly though, kaven walker states we have 'agreed a deal'. sounds like theyve given him away for nowt.

That really was awful mansfield! :P Let's hope he can bring some mych needed experience to our midfield. If we left Bullen out, we've got to be one of the youngest teams in the division don't we? Especially if both Beevers and Spurr play...

Glad to see the Folly issue is finally reolved, we have a player who can challenge for a first team place instead of being a decent back up player but never anything more. Good move for the club
