Just before the Clarets departed on their US Tour they had a £2m bid for Owls striker, Marcus Tudgay rejected by Sheffield Wednesday. In a salvo of ill- feeling from the Hillsborough club Burnley were also told in no uncertain terms that the offer was quote 'derisory' and had been 'unsettling for the player'. Both the player and his agent, Darryl Powell seemed upset by the remarks and the feeling was that the 26-year old could slap in a transfer request to force the issue.
Tudgay certainly seemed to be stalling signing a new three contract for the Owls despite giving verbal reasurance that he would do so on his return from holiday back in May. Media reports suggested he was keen to speak to Burnley about a move in order to fulfill his ambitions of playing in the Premier League.
All seemed to then go quiet however with the Clarets out in the US on their West Coast Tour.
News broke yesterday in the national media and on certain Clarets websites that Tudgay had decided against a move and was now willing to sign a new contract with Wednesday after all.
Today however the Lancashire Telegraph state that they understand Tudgay`s future is still uncertain and that Owen Coyle could renew his interest in the striker after returning from the US this Monday.Tudgay is also believed to still want the option to speak with the Clarets gaffer about a potential move.
So once more this saga looks set to continue
