Wednesday boss Brian Laws has admitted his interest in signing Bristol City’s Dele Adebola but has refused to get into ‘bidding wars’ for the striker.

The Owls have long been linked with the experienced hitman, with his contract set to expire at Ashton Gate this summer and Bristol unlikely to offer him a new deal.

But although Adebola will fall into Wednesday’s price range – a free transfer – he’s thought to have out-priced himself for a move to Hillsborough with his wage demands.

Championship rivals Nottingham Forest are also said to be interested in Adebola and could well be the favourites for his signature.

Laws told BBC Radio Sheffield that Wednesday were interested in adding him to their 2009-10 squad but have since dropped their interest.
