Sheffield Wednesday are keen to keep Alex Bruce for next season.Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock has confirmed that the Championship new boys will in all likelihood keep Alex Bruce at Hillsborough next season.
The Birmingham defender established himself as regular during the close of last season having joined the club in a loan deal.
Sturrock was sufficiently impressed with the youngster's contribution and has already started negotiations to secure his services next term.
''Alex has done very well for us and I spoke to his dad after the game,'' Sturrock told the Yorkshire Post.
''I have got to weigh up my squad but I don't envisage having any serious problems in bringing Alex to the club.''
Meanwhile, four Wednesday players are currently weighing up contract offers - with Sturrock confident they have received the right level of deal.
Defender Richard Wood has all but certainly agreed a one-year deal, whilst Graeme Lee is mulling over a pay-as-you-play offer.
Striker James Quinn is weighing up his options and captain Lee Bullen is also wanted by Scottish clubs Falkirk and Dunfermline.
''The rest have been offered what I consider to be a favourable wage for the league we are going in,'' concluded Sturrock.
