Report: Sheffield Wednesday reject big-money bids for Tom Lees and Keiren Westwood

Sheffield Wednesday

Carlos Carvalhal has ruled out Sheffield Wednesday selling any of their key players in January.

According to a report in the Sheffield Star, Sheffield Wednesday have rejected big money offers for Keiren Westwood and Tom Lees in January.

Both Westwood and Lees have impressed with their performances for the Owls this season, and they are regarded as two of the finest players in the Championship.

Interest has reportedly risen in their services, but Wednesday have no intention of cashing in on the pair, according to Carlos Carvalhal.

“We are not selling any players during this period,” the Portuguese boss said. “We are improving the players.

“Some offers have come to our players but I have met with our chairman and he has made it very clear that we are not selling any players in January. That’s the reality.

“Our players are not on the market and that is good news for us. Sometimes it is better not to sell a player than bringing someone in.”

Lees has been linked with Norwich City in the Daily Mail.

The centre back is currently out injured, but is expected to make his return to Wednesday’s team in the near future.

His comeback will be a major boost to Wednesday’s team, as they look to make a push for the play offs.

As well as keeping hold of their key players, Wednesday have also been active in January already.

The Owls have brought in Joe Bennett from Aston Villa, while they have tied down a number of key players on contracts and they are expected to complete the signing of Gary Hooper later today, according to the Sheffield Star.
