Sheffield Wednesday have reportedly failed in a bid for Swansea star Lee Trundle.Sheffield Wednesday have reportedly had a bid of £475,000 for Swansea star Lee Trundle turned down.
The forward is one of the lower leagues' most beguiling talents and, along with his extensive repertoire of tricks, has scored nine goals in as many games as The Swans have raced to first in League One.
Trundle played a key role in the Welsh club's promotion last season, claiming the League Two Player of the Year award, and has attracted interest from the likes of Leicester and Southampton in the past.
After failing to land Wycombe's Nathan Tyson, Owls boss Paul Sturrock has reputedly turned his attentions to the impressive Trundle as he looks for a hit-man to drag his side off the bottom of The Championship.
However reports suggest that an initial opening bid of £425,000 has been waved away, with Swansea unwilling to let the jewel in their crown depart.
Meanwhile, Kenny Jackett's side could be boosted by the surprise inclusion of Adrian Forbes in the squad to face Blackpool on Saturday.
The attacking midfielder underwent a knee operation three weeks ago and could be in line for his first appearance since August 13.
"He has trained well," Jackett told the club's official website.
"He could very well come into the reckoning for Saturday, but only if he's 100 percent right."
