Former Owl Darryl Powell, the agent of Wednesday striker Marcus Tudgay, insists the player is happy at the club and focused on the season ahead.

Tudgay was subject of a bid from a Premier League club last week, understood to be Blackpool, which was turned down by Wednesday.

And although Powell insists the striker is happy at Hillsborough, he can’t guarantee that he’ll be wearing the blue and white for much longer if the Seasiders come back with an improved offer.

He told the Sheffield Star: ‘The initial offer was not good enough and the manager wants to keep his best players but, if the offer is right, Marcus will be allowed to speak to Blackpool.

‘Until the club says ‘yes’ to an offer, Marcus remains totally focused on doing his best for Sheffield Wednesday. He is happy at the club but not happy that they are going to be playing League One football this season.’

Burnley, and former Owls boss Brian Laws, have also been linked with the services of the former Derby County man following Wednesday’s relegation from the Championship last season.
