Sheffield Wednesday are in talks with newly-promoted Premier League side Watford over midfielder Lewis McGugan, according to FLW Sources.
The former Nottingham Forest midfielder spent the majority of the season on loan at the Owls, after complaining to the Hornets about his lack of first team football at the club.
He was shifted out on loan to Hillsborough, and very much impressed staff and fans alike, and despite the club parting company with manager Stuart Gray, they still remain intent on capturing the 26-year-old’s signature.
FLW Sources understand that Watford are asking too high a price for him, and that despite being listed as not need by the club, Sheffield Wednesday aren’t willing to match their price and are continuing to negotiate a fee.
Wednesday’s aims are to emulate Watford next year and gun for promotion. Under new Thai owners and an incoming new manager, expected to be Portuguese coach Carlos Carvalhal, they hope to spend wisely this summer and achieve promotion back to the top-flight.
