Sheff Wed have been forced to abandon their interest in MK Dons striker Clive Platt.Sheffield Wednesday have been forced to abandon their interest in Milton Keynes Dons striker Clive Platt.
Owls boss Paul Sturrock is desperate to add to his attack, after seeing his strike-force riven by injuries.
Sturrock wanted Platt to fill the void at Hillsborough but his efforts to sign the imposing forward have been rebuffed.
MK Dons rejected the initial offer from the Championship club and have warned The Owls they would not welcome a second bid.
Owls chief executive Kaven Walker has now confirmed the club will heed the wishes of MK Dons and drop their interest in Platt.
The 27-year-old only moved to The National Hockey Stadium in January, after joining from Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee.
He has scored just three times in 20 appearances for MK Dons with his first goal coming against The Owls in January.
Platt has not played this season but is clearly a part of Danny Wilson's plans after the League One outfit dismissed Wednesday's bid.
