Burnley manager Brian Laws has dismissed rumours of a swoop for goalkeeper Lee Grant as pure speculation.

The Owls stopper has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, following his former boss from Hillsborough to Turf Moor.

The 26-year-old former Derby keeper has played 25 times in the Championship for Wednesday this season and Laws concedes he is an excellent last line of defence.

However, he also the dismissed transfer rumours as having no foundation in reality.

"The majority will put two and two together because I've worked with him and he's a good goalkeeper," he said.

"Obviously people speculate and we can't stop that. He's quite clearly a very good goalkeeper and he's got a bright future ahead of him but there's certainly nothing in it at the moment."

Grant is reportedly valued at £2million by the Owls, with Stoke also rumoured to be interested in his signature.
