QPR Line Up 1m Spurr Bid

Queens Park Rangers are said to be lining up a final offer of 1m for highly-rated Owls' youngster Tommy Spurr according to media reports today.

Spurr, who has his home kit sponsored by Vital Sheffield Wednesday, has already been subject of a bid from the R's alongside fellow Owl Jermaine Johnson.

But Owls boss Brian Laws turned down the first approach for the left-back, despite the need to sell players to enable him to bring new players in during the January transfer window.

But the Loftus Road club, who have enjoyed fresh investment in recent weeks, are said to be lining up a fresh, and final approach for the Leeds-born product before the end of the January transfer window, said to be in the region of 1m.

And despite Spurr becoming a firm fans' favourite at Hillsborough, an approach of 1m could well prove too much to resist for the cash-strapped Owls.

We'll wait and see...

for 1 million i'd drive him down to Loftus Road myself! I like the kid but he certainly aint worth that much! I think we can replace him easily enough using a quarter of that money.

I agree - a lot of money for a very average player but who the hell ahve we got to replace him and who the hell would want to come to us right now if we were going to buy anyone?? I say keep him for now - he's only going to get better (only way is up???) and will be worth more. Don't sell - knee jerk reaction!

I have to say that QPR are really making me laugh, throwing money around like they own the place. I mean, who in their right mind would consider that a club whos average attendance is that of a local pub team is a step in the right direction, career wise? At the end of the day, you cannot polish a turd and I cannot see QPR becoming anything more than west Londons "also-rans". I say keep Spurr and tell QPR to take a hike.

not long ago everyone on here was slagging him off, in the ideal world we should hang on to him as there's an outside chance he may turn out to be worth 2-3mil, however we are not in the ideal world and 1m for a decentish left back is more a good deal, especially as we could replace him with someone just as good (although without the potential tommy has for 250k) leaving 250k to get a loan player until the end of the season, take a gamble on a couple of cheap youngsters (like we did with brunt, whelan, bougherra, franky, et al) and knocking half a million off the debt.... an entirely unromantic proposal i'll except but that is the way we're going to need to grow for atleast a couple of years before we can start thinking about holding on to such players as tommy when we get a million pound bid
