Rumour Mill-No Owls of Protest Over Treacy?

Newly promoted Sheffield Wednesday could be about to sign Burnley winger, Keith Treacy on a permanent deal.

The 23 year old Republic of Ireland international joined the Owls on loan in March after struggling to establish himself in the Clarets first team.

Treacy, although not a regular choice did help the Owls achieve promotion back to the Championship. Wednesday finished in the League 1 runners-up spot and Treacy could now be ready to remain at Hillsborough and face the Clarets next season.

The former Blackburn and Preston winger made in total seven appearances for Dave Jones side although that included only two starts. His loan was extended though until the end of the season and he scored one goal and made one assist against Brentford in their penultimate game of the season. He then went on to help the Owls beat Wycombe 2-0 at home last Saturday in their final game of the season and ensure their automatic promotion back to the Championship. Just before that final game,Treacy expressed an interest in joining Wednesday full-time.

Treacy appears to love playing his football in the Steel City with his first spell being on loan to Sheffield United from Blackburn Rovers for four months at the start of the 2009/10 season.

"When I was with United, I loved the city and playing here. The fans are so passionate," said Treacy.

"I love playing football in Sheffield. The Wednesday fans have really taken to me."

Treacy has been a huge disappointment at Turf Moor after arriving with high hopes last Summer for a fee of 500,000. Clarets fans would probably not be too disheartened if he now left the club.

Can't say I am surprised by this news! Just hope we can recuperate a significant slice of the cash we paid out for him!

Well, he has done it well at Wednesday witch should have rised his pricetag. Tho' I must say - I'm not to fond with the idea that only Stanislas can play purely on the left wing. We need another l.v, guys.... Treacy looks like isn't a part of the plans for the future, but than bring in another one.. McQuoid?

Wouldnt be surprised at all if Keith leaves - clearly has quality but it doesnt show often enough.

Just like Kev McDonald he needs to grow up and work out what he wants? Sportsman and Professional Athlete or a rich numpty, and on the case of rich numptys please add the legend that could have been Robbie (I am leaving to play football) Blake or maybe just to cash in on a big pay day.....

His decent form at Wednesday presumably has increased the chances of us holding out for at least what we paid, whether from Wednesday or someone else. Then again, early resolution of Keith's future would let us do more advance planning, which we didn't have enough of last year. Who'd be a Chief Exec? Presumably Lee Hoos plus Eddie and Brendan are calling the window shots?

I would be surprised if we get what we paid CP ( whatever that figure is) - I would expect if he does leave it will be on the ever increasing ' undisc' values!

he has done ok without pulling any trees up. has a good left foot and can put a great ball in. but not sure whether hes a championship player. he would be an ok signing as a squad player for the owls but if he stayed with you or moved to someone else i wouldnt be bothered

Good shout that Mick, he drifts out of games far too easy for me, fails to show for the ball enough and tracks back every Bank Holiday Thursday! Scored a peach at Posh for us "last season" but little else of "TEAM" value imo.

I just sense there may be something else going on here. He did have personal problems earlier in the season and there is a feeling that Howe & Treacy don't exactly hit it off! You are right though, if players don't perform on the pitch whatever the circumstances time to get rid!

If we do get rid of Treacy, it will mean we will need another winger and the list of goodbye players is expanding by the minute. Easton, Amougou, Treacy and maybe Hines. Add to that the possibility of losing Jay Rod and god forbid Trippier, you begin to see the extent of the squad rebuilding and financing we might need against a backdrop of pleading poverty and the FIFA Fair Play ruling!

how come were quoting 500k when he cost us a 1M with ad ons ? he's been a disastrous signing what happened here? he played well for Preston and for the owls but was totally ****e for us

Yeah and I have also just been reading about the player formally know as Bikey, fireing on all cylinders for Bristol City why couldn't Eddie and his team the the best of both him and Tracy? for me that has to be a worry both quality players in their days so what went wrong ?

Players sometimes done work out at clubs - for whatever reason. I am sure we have benefitted from the good performances of players who werent doing it at the club we had signed them from. With regards to the price - we probably dont know the real value ( and why should we?) My opinion at the time was that it was about 700K

In fairness tmp we have known Bikey was going since before Christmas so is the thinking of EH Edgar, Duff and Mee as our main 3 for two places in Central Defence with a youngster as our 4th option? We started last season with Bikey & Mee playing against Watford with Duff and Edgar in reserve. Wingers? We have Wallace and Junior, Pato has played out wide under SuBo for quite a few games. Treacy needs a big City club where he can remain annon if he desires to have a quiet night out unlike Burnley and Preston where he far too often is spotted. I disagree with Hollins re Treacy he had not been consistent for a long time if you listen to the PNE faithfull and Bikey as all know is a true legend in my eyes.

Stanislas blows too hot & cold for me! We could do ourselves a favour by trying to bring McQuoid to the club. He would give us options both in attack and on the flanks
