Owls fail to woo striker Kluivert
Patrick Kluivert
Kluivert has been offered a trial by Sheffield Wednesday
Former Holland striker Patrick Kluivert has turned down the offer of a trial period at Sheffield Wednesday.

The 31-year-old plays for PSV Eindhoven but is understood to be looking for a move elsewhere.

He told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: "I am flattered by the interest, but a transfer to Sheffield Wednesday doesn't fit in my future plans."

Kluivert added: "My agent will put all offers next to each other, after which I will make a choice."

He has experience of playing in England after a spell with Newcastle.

Kluivert started only 14 Premiership games for the Magpies, scoring six times.

Newcastle rejected the opportunity to take up the option for a second year on his contract leaving him free to join Valencia in the summer of 2005.

He subsequently left the Spanish side to link up with PSV the following year.

Kluivert has played for some of Europe's biggest clubs including AC Milan, Ajax and Barcelona.
