The Ben Marshall story (the "rumoured" facts from Stoke!) - Ben is refusing a new contract at Stoke cos he wants to sign for the Owls.
But Owls won't match the offers that Stoke already have on the table for him because we know he wants to come and play for Owls.
Stoke are refusing to let him come here on cheap and have told him either - 1.- Sign new contract and come back to Owls on loan, .2.- Sign for one of clubs that have made acceptable offers, .3.- If Owls match other offers he can come, or .4.- They'll stick him in reserves till his contracts up , and they are prepared to do that rather than be held to ransom by Wednesday ?

Load of crap

Agree4 Disagree4

First plausible rumour Iv heard about Marshall. He's worth and he would still be a massive asset in the Championship. UTO

Agree4 Disagree1

Rumoured facts he he

Agree0 Disagree2

This sounds a bit too Eastenders to me chap

Agree0 Disagree4

Not true the hold up is with marshall and stoke reguarding his contract.

Agree3 Disagree1

Update from original poster - MM has confirmed today (see BBC) that we are likely to sign Marshall on permanent deal IF we can agree with Stoke? What's to agree ??
To the one who posted "not true, its about his contract" - DID YOU READ IT? that's what my WHOLE POST is about ?
All I would say in response to MM is why don't we just pay the asking price instead of pi**ing Stoke off ? He's worth more than they're asking anyway - just do the deal PLEASE !!

Just seen mention of a possible move for Matt Ritchie from swindon on twitter. Just thought i'd mention it (as a rumour) but 6 goals in 17 for a left winger he may be worth a punt?

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Worth a punt

Agree5 Disagree0

Never mind his goals, check out the quality crossing, would be our best crosser since Brunty,have been going on about this lad all season, realy hope there's some truth in this one.

Agree5 Disagree1

Where does it say this. Although like you say would be a great signing for us hes fast, skilful, got a great cross and shot under his belt along with nit being affraied to shoot as his goals show. Would be great for as he also works hard for the team

Agree3 Disagree1

Di canio slapped a 2 million quid price tag on him in mid November as a few championship clubs were enquiring so I don't wreckon there's any chance well fork out that much!

Agree0 Disagree0

Mark Beevers linked with Chesterfield AND Colchester. I think the latter is a better career move and more realistic than Chesterfield who, with the greatest of respect, are probably gonna be league 2 club next season.

Think if he goes it'd be a loan to keep him fit now we dont have a reserve team

Wednesday set to sign newcastle starlet Shane ferguson on loan till end of season, this lads got pace can play left back but even better on left wing!!!

Believable9 Unbelievable9

Ben Marshall coming tomorrow for 600,000 Mr Mandric to splash out to secure promotion!!

Agree7 Disagree11

Three million pounds to be spent to ensure promotion. More money next year to hopefully secure premiership return in two seasons

Agree6 Disagree10

Everybody hopes you're right - but I'll only believe it when I see the wallet opened and the contracts signed !!

Agree6 Disagree1

Why are you so certain Marshall is gonna sign tomorrow ?.

Agree5 Disagree2

I find the individuals who doubt Mandarics commitment to the club quite remarkable. Do they not realise how much has been invested. The following have all been signed, Madine, R Johnson, Lines, O'Grady, Lowe, Bywater, R Jones, Llera, Prutton plus a number of loan signings. These will have all cost money and we are still looking and he has gone on record saying another 5m will be shelled out before end of year. If Marshall is sold for 600,000 he will come to Hillsbrough but we still need another winger.

Agree6 Disagree4

Wishful thinking

Agree4 Disagree2

Got a gut feeling on the Marshall situation I mean why else would he be stalling on a new deal at Stoke, have heard the rumours of Leicester sniffing though but it was a small bit in the Daily Star so not convinced its true.

Agree0 Disagree2

YES he is on record as saying "he will invest 5m on team" - let's see how much of that he's ACTUALLY spent at the end of January? Yes he's spent a lot of money "on the SWFC business ", which we are ALL eternally grateful for, BUT he can recoup all that, with profit, at any time of his choosing. The problem fans like me have is we can see the finish line , and we can get over the line with just 1or2 key players coming in? - IF MM funds them, as he's promised to. But instead there's a lot of negative noises from the people at Hills. particularly about Aldridge " the man who actually does the deals" ? beginning to think he's a Charlton supporter - or even worse a Blade.

Agree1 Disagree2

Theres still a long time left in this transfer window so wait and see who we sign first before criticizing people

Agree0 Disagree2

Yeah he can recoup the debts that he paid off for us already. im sure the banks would let him do that. lets remember hes bin here a year and easy shelled out 10m plus already. the difference thats made is immense so stop your wingin and get behind everything that is the wednesday. uto

Agree2 Disagree2

Someone from leicester has said there is nothing in the papers or no news linkning them with marshall!

Agree0 Disagree0

Well I'm sold if its coming from "someone in Leicester".

Been told a rumour that Leicester are apparently in talks with Stoke for a permanent deal with Marshall. If this happens though, apparently, we will take Lloyd Dyer on loan until the end of the season. No idea how true it is, but this is a rumours site after all!

Believable9 Unbelievable11

That would be a disaster tavernier gone back aswell

Emile Hesky has been linked with a move to Sheffield Wednesday and leicester, with a sum of 400k a likely fee as Aston Villa look to make way for younger forwards to establish themselves in the first team.

Believable8 Unbelievable15

Hope not. He just lays on the floor and rolls around.

Agree9 Disagree3

We are not looking for a striker and certain we will not be paying wages of a player such as Heskey when he has been prone to injury and his legs having gone. Agent speculation trying to drum up business.

Agree11 Disagree3

He's sh1t

Agree10 Disagree4

Hes got the skills to pay the bills

Agree8 Disagree0

Megson said today we never even looked at signing Heskey

Agree0 Disagree2

Pray we sign him hes got SWEATY GOALS

You are to sign alex nimley from us this transfer window im telling you this cus this lad is going to be a world beater, don't think your keeping hold of him cus you could,t afford him...he will get you promoted, you maybe do a man city n get back were you belong, good luck Deano mcfc...

Believable5 Unbelievable7

This lad is a striker and we are well covered in that position. Also had 3 months earlier in season at Middlesbrough and basically was a flop at championship level. So would be surprised if he is joining us.

Agree4 Disagree3

No we aint he joined Coventry today
