Marcus Tudgay's agent admits the Sheffield Wednesday striker is considering handing in a transfer request as he looks to win a move to Burnley.

Burnley have had a bid rejected by Wednesday for last season's top scorer as they look to lure Tudgay to Turf Moor.

Tudgay is keen on having the opportunity to talk to Burnley as he seeks to win a move to the Premier League.

Wednesday have accused Burnley of unsettling Tudgay and expressed their disappointment in the player's representative Darryl Powell for trying to engineer a move.

Powell admits Tudgay is unhappy at seeing a potential move to the Premier League blocked and is considering all his options.

"Marcus wants to go to Burnley and he is disappointed that they have rejected a bid for him," Powell told

"Like any player, Marcus wants to play in the Premier League and we are considering all our options.

"I plan to sit down with Marcus next week and we will decide what is best for him to do.

"Obviously handing in a transfer request is an option and we will talk through all our options."

Powell admits Tudgay will not be signing the new deal on offer at Wednesday and he is surprised the club described Burnley's bid, which is believed to be in the region of £2million, as being 'derisory'.

He added: "Marcus is not thinking of signing the new deal on offer and he is ready to wait and see what happens.

"Marcus is a bit miffed that an offer of £2million in the current financial climate is thought as being derisory. To call the bid derisory was a bit rude I thought for a player who is entering the final year of his contract."
