Stone rejects Owls
Aston Villa's Steve Stone has turned down a loan move to Sheffield Wednesday because they could not afford his wages.

Owls boss Terry Yorath hoped to bring the 31-year-old midfielder to Hillsborough and help improve his struggling side's fortunes.

"We have worked on this one but it has not proved possible," said Yorath.

"I feel he would have been the right sort for us.

"He is the type who could have come in and done a good job."

Meanwhile, Yorath has been dealt the blow of having left-back and acting captain David Burrows sidelined for five weeks because of injury.

Burrows fell awkwardly during the Worthington Cup defeat to Leicester on 2 October and initial tests only revelaed severe bruising which would have kept him out for two weeks.

But further X-rays carried out once the swelling had subsided have shown a hairline fracture of his collarbone.

Danny Maddix should continue to deputise as skipper in Burrows' absence with Craig Armstrong filling in at left-back.
