Billy Sharp, Kenwyne Jones and now Wycombe Wanderers’ Jermaine Easter – the rumour mill is well and truly under way at Hillsborough.

Welsh international Easter is the latest name to be linked with a summer move to Hillsborough after the 25-year-old enjoyed a successful campaign with the League Two side last term.

The former Stockport and Cambridge hitman bagged 26 goals in all competitions last season and attracted the interest of Premiership duo Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City thanks to some superb displays which helped Wanderers to the semi-finals of the League Cup.

And now the Owls have entered the race for his signature according to reports, with Championship rivals West Brom, Cardiff City and Crystal Palace also showing interest.

And it’s thought the striker will command a fee in excess of £675,000 with Blues boss Paul Lambert insisting he won’t sit down at the negotiating table until the fee is met by any interested parties.

Lambert said: ‘At this moment in time there have been no bids for him and I want it to stay that way.

‘He has done brilliantly for us and it would have to be a massive offer for us to even listen. Nathan Tyson left here for £675,000 after scoring all those goals and it would have to be the equivalent again.’

But Easter’s representatives SEM have revealed the hitman will be in no rush to decide his fate.

‘At this moment Jermaine is enjoying a break,’ an SEM spokesman told skysports.com.

‘We are not talking with anyone about Jermaine and he is happy with life at Wycombe but you never know what is going to happen in the future.’
