Sport Journalist predicts asking price of Sheffield Wednesday transfer target ahead of summer window
Sheffield United transfer news: Unwelcome clause revealed amid interest
Sheffield Wednesday would have to pay a fee in the region of £200,000 to secure a deal for Cheltenham’s Will Boyle.
The centre-back is a transfer target for the Owls, with representatives of the Yorkshire club having watched the 25-year-old play on several occasions as they plan for next season.
With Darren Moore preparing for life in League One, the financial implications of relegation mean he will be relying mainly on free agents and loan signings.
However, they would have to pay for Boyle, who is under contract with the Robins until the summer of 2022. But,that a fee of around £200,000 would be enough to seal a deal.
Sheffield Wednesday dealt injury blow ahead of Forest clash, Moore will be gutted - opinion
Sheffield Wednesday have been handed a blow as Jamie Smith confirmed that Tom Lees is set to miss the Owls’ crucial Championship fixture this afternoon. What’s the latest?

That’s partly down to the fact the big defender is entering the final year of his contract, whilst Cheltenham are not in a position where they can demand significant fees for their players, even though they will be playing in League One themselves next season.
Boyle scored six goals in 29 games before injuries prevented him featuring for the run-in as Michael Duff’s side went up.
It’s clear that Wednesday will be operating on a strict budget in the summer, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be able to spend any money and if they can get Boyle for £200,000, as Palmer suggests, they should do it.
The defender fits the profile for the type of player they should be targeting as he is entering his prime years, whilst he would have the hunger and determination to succeed at Wednesday.
He is obviously a player they rate and it will be interesting to see if they can finalise a deal for Boyle in what’s sure to be a very busy summer.

Lloyd Price, singer and early rock influence, dies at 88 .
NEW YORK (AP) — Singer-songwriter Lloyd Price, an early rock ’n roll star and enduring maverick whose hits included such up-tempo favorites as “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” “Personality” and the semi-forbidden “Stagger Lee,” has died. He was 88. Price died Monday at a long-term care facility in New Rochelle, New York, of complications from diabetes, his wife, Jacqueline Price, told The Associated Press on Saturday. Lloyd Price, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, was among the last survivors of a post-World War II scene in New Orleans that anticipated the shifts in popular music and culture leading to the rise of rock in the mid-1950s.
