Spurr Situation Soured By Sheffield

Spurr Situation Soured By Sheffield

Speculation surrounding Sheffield Wednesday's 20-year-old defender Tommy Spurr joining the R's was soured yesterday when reports surfaced of two generous offers to recruit the Owl were turned down.

The first firm report of a potential transfer was made on 22 December when the Yorkshire Post published an article in which Wednesday's Youth Academy player of the year for season 2004-05 reportedly nearly fell off his sofa when he saw news of a decision to reject an undisclosed offer from Rangers flashed across his television screen.

In response to the suggested transfer, Leeds born Tommy said...

'I only found out about this the same way as everyone else did, by watching Sky Sports News! It came as a surprise but at least its nice to know that I am doing something right somewhere along the line.'

'However, I am happy playing for Sheffield Wednesday and I am happy to keep on playing as long as I can. I am still learning and developing as a player and, hopefully, I will get even better.'


On Saturday 12 January, the Sheffield Wednesday website made an official statement...

'Sheffield Wednesday has turned down a bid from Queens Park Rangers for the services of left back Tommy Spurr.'

'QPR bid for the Owls Academy product last month and came back with an improved offer for the 20-year-old defender but the Hillsborough management rejected this.'


Queens Park Rangers Football Club have maintained their silence over the situation, however, fans can expect an improved offer within the coming days.

Perhaps an offer of £1million might be turned down but £1.75m - now Wednesday wouldn't and couldn't turn down that much, could they? All speculation of course!

Of course I can't speak for the board! I'd say we'd find it hard to resist that much money. We should be hanging on to these players but in our financial situation, it has to be balanced with managing the debt. Unless we get a takeover of course ;)

Ozanne, if cluns want him, he's proven himself. December Player of the Month at Wednesday, playing out of position at left back (he's a centre back).

Our new signings are average are they mick66owl. We'll just have to see about that won't we, especially when we're playing in the Premier League and you lot have dropped down a division.

The recent purchases by the R's show decent business sense, you build a team and progress from there, you don't buy your way into the premiership as so many have tried and failed. I've never seen the lad play so I can't comment on how much of an asset he'll be to the QPR squad, but judging by recent acquisitions I will trust the board to pay no more than he's worth. Hopefully the Owls can swallow their drool and accept a fair price for the lad, that way they can use the cash to maintain their championship status.
