Owls reject Burnley's Whelan bid
Glenn Whelan
Whelan would be able to leave the Owls on a free this summer
Sheffield Wednesday have rejected an offer from Championship rivals Burnley for midfielder Glenn Whelan.

Whelan, who will be 24 on Sunday, is out of contract this summer and so would be able to leave Hillsborough on a free transfer.

BBC Radio Sheffield understands that Burnley's bid was considerably higher than the one tabled by Plymouth which was rejected earlier this week.

Whelan has made 139 league appearances since joining the Owls in 2004.

Boss Brian Laws told Wednesday's website: "I can confirm that we have received a bid from Burnley, but it is certainly not an offer that interests us at this time."
