Whelan Rumours Continue

Whelan Rumours Continue

With the January transfer window now in full swing, Owls' highly-rated midfielder Glenn Whelan continues to be linked with a move away from Hillsborough.

The battling Irish midfielder, who put in a top-drawer performance in front of the Sky audience in the Steel City derby clash at the weekend, has yet to sign a new contract at S6, despite his current deal running out at the end of the season.

And his performances in the blue and white stripes have attracted the attention of Championship rivals West Brom, who've already bagged Owls' star Chris Brunt, and Watford according to media reports today.

The 24-year-old has already attracted the interest of Paul Sturrock's Plymouth Arglye and Burnley in January, while Derby County and Bolton are also said to be admirers of the former Republic of Ireland under-21 skipper.

Whelan has yet to give any indicators as to where his future lies, but Wednesday could well opt to cash-in on the former Manchester City youngster following the arrival of Ronnie Wallwork earlier this month.

no surprises if he goes. Wall work is no long term replacement though. For the last 10 years the sheff wed motto has been "lets find a quick fix to every problem". Ah well at least we stuffed the blunts

Hear what you are saying Norman but if he won't sign a new contract then there is not a lot the club can do about it.
24/01/2008 13:21:00
Until he buggers off there will be rumours about him till then!!
will it ever happen
24/01/2008 13:31:00

24/01/2008 15:00:00
well he plays and talks like he wants to stay but if the board havent offered him anything since august then whelan must surely think to himself P45 is coming so im off and who would blame him
24/01/2008 15:31:00
Thing is we will never know if he really wants to stay or whats happening behind the scenes, all i know is i would rather sell him now than get nowt in the summer
24/01/2008 16:37:00
Listening to him on the radio the other night before the derby game, he wasn't even interested in talking about him staying or not, not one little bit!!
will it ever happen
24/01/2008 16:40:00
iam with you lee but if the board went upto him now and said heres £8ooo aweek with sum bonuses he would stay
24/01/2008 16:53:00
