  1. Borukov signs Owls contract Just now Owls academy product Preslav Borukov has signed his first professional contract with Wednesday. The bustling forward has proven a tremendous asset in the Owls’ attack at youth level since joining the club from PFC Levski Sofia in summer 2016. The Bulgarian youth international enjoyed an eye-catching campaign last time out for both the Under-18s and Under-23s, earning widespread acclaim in the process. Speaking exclusively to swfc.co.uk, the 18-year old said: “I’m really happy and I’ve worked really hard for the two years in my scholarship. “I’m happy to be a professional footballer at Sheffield Wednesday, my target now is to reach the first team.” With goals on a regular basis for the 18s and 23s, the teenager went from strength to strength during the 2017/18 run-in, with one of the highlights an impressive hat-trick against Crewe at Middlewood Road. The forward has also impressed on international duty, scoring against Macedonia and Georgia for Bulgaria’s Under-18s at the beginning of the June. He added: “Last season was a great experience, I had the pleasure to play with good players in the Under-23s. “I want to lead as an example of what it means to be a professional football player and now I need to follow the first team players and learn from them. “I want to thank Sheffield Wednesday for giving me the opportunity to prove myself in England and giving me the chance to play. “I also want to thank all the staff at the club for their support. And I want to thank my team mates because without them helping me I wouldn’t be here now signing my first professional contract. “The staff have helped me a lot, when I was 16 I left my parents, my home and my friends in Bulgaria. So when I came here the people helped me a lot and they’ve made me a better player.”

    BREAKING - George Hirst Gone

    There will be no compensation required. I suspect after a year, maybe more he will be confirmed as a Leicester player. We have been royally screwed.
  3. It was last night on his 'deep bath' show
  4. Which is only good news for us. If they loan him for the season and he does well, his reputation will grow again and so will his transfer fee, it's a win win situation for us with a large chunk of his wages off the books.

    Rhodes to Norwich

    It's a loan. It would make no sense at all to sell him due to FFP. Hopefully we get a decent % out of Norwich for his wages.
  6. BBC Norfolk are reporting this now as well.
  7. Always thought he was bang average,he's also slower than Glen Loovens.
  8. All the best Andy, you've been an integral part in our GK development over the past 8 years.

    No doubt Doom Howson will put a negative spin on the picture. 'Owls players on holiday trying to force a move away from the club'

    He came with Irvine in 2010
  12. Yes but look how much the game has changed moneywise in the last 2-3 years. £3.5 million for a championship club to spend was a lot of money at the time, now its the norm. if we were to buy Forestieri this window with his form from 2014-15 at Watford he’d be worth double what we paid.
  13. I wish him all the best, he's been fantastic for us. Not only has he worked with Bywater, Kirkland and Westwood he's also brought on Wildsmith and Dawson. Makes you wonder if Jos will have one his previous GK coaches come in or if he will go for somebody like Pressman?
  14. He also lives that way so it will no doubt make the decision even easier. The situation with Jordan 100% won't be helping matters.
  15. Agreed, I also remember Kirkland and Westwood saying how crucial he was in getting them to sign for us. He's been here 8 years now though so he maybe ready for a new venture.
