According to the Daily Mirror our new manager, Brian Laws is returning to his old club Sheffield Wednesday with a £1.5million bid for keeper Lee Grant although Skysports.com understands Burnley had lined up a move for the keeper prior to Owen Coyle's departure.
The 26 year old keeper is highly regarded and has previously been voted the best keeper in the Championship.
It is understood the club have enough cash to sign the former England Under 21 International although the Mirror understand he is on a high salary at Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday are desperate to raise cash to ease their financial worries and it could be a tug of war with new Owls manager, Alan Irvine desperate to hold onto Grant.
Grant has a long term contract at Sheffield Wednesday so they will be looking for a reasonable transfer fee if they are willing to let him go.
Grant started his professional career with Derby County and made his debut for the Rams against Burnley in September 2002.
Lee Grant actually played for Burnley too during an emergency loan spell in November 2005. You probably won't remember it though. The then Burnley manager, Steve Cotterill brought him to Turf Moor on a month's loan from Derby County with his two regular keepers, Danny Coyne and Brian Jensen both unavailable.
He went straight into the team that played Leicester City at Turf Moor on the 19th November and he kept a clean sheet with the Clarets coming out 1-0 winners.
Brian Jensen though returned for the next game after a one match suspension and Grant would see out his loan without playing for the Clarets again.
Grant had another loan spell with Oldham Athletic before eventually leaving Pride Park after his contract expired in July 2007 and was not renewed.
He then signed a three-year contract with Sheffield Wednesday in July 2007,with the manager bringing him to Hillsborough being of course Brian Laws!
