Four showed deadline day Scowen interest

Bucks Free Press: Josh Scowen Josh Scowen

JOSH Scowen was subject to deadline day interest from four clubs, including one in the Premier League, Wanderers chairman Don Woodward said.

Blues accepted a bid for their current player of the year on Thursday, the final day of the loan transfer window.

An offer was on the table for a loan move away from Adams Park, with a view to Scowen leaving permanently in the summer.

Woodward said it was a bid the club couldn't afford to turn down but after considering the offer the 21-year-old decided he wanted an unpressured think about his long-term future in the close season.

The Blues chairman said: "Josh thought, 'Why don't I hold on, help Wycombe and think about it in the summer?'

"It came about that morning, from a variety of clubs in a variety of leagues - mainly Championship and Premiership.

"It was an odd one because it was so late and unexpected. It was an unbelievable offer."

Woodward added: "Whilst Josh is a fantastic player we have always said we are not going to stand in the way of a good player, ever. He had a choice and he decided not to go."

I know we need the money but i can't believe the board wanted to sell him while we are fightinh hard to stay in the football league as he's our best player. Fair play to Josh for staying until the end of the season and wherever he goes i wish him all the best for the future.
