SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY boss Terry Yorath has revealed he has rejected two offers from Manchester City for rising star Leigh Bromby.

The 21-year-old Dewsbury-born ace has won rave reviews for a number of outstanding performances for Wednesday this season, but the struggling Owls are keen to hold on to their prized asset despite bids in excess of £1 million.

"We've had a couple of offers from Manchester City which we have turned down," Wednesday boss Terry Yorath said.

"They were obviously keen to buy him and came back to us a second time, but the board decided that what they offered wasn't the right price.

"I'm delighted the board have been generous towards me and allowed Leigh to stay."

Although stressing he is keen to keep Bromby, Yorath added that a further, improved, offer could persuade The Owls to cash in.

"There is a certain value we have placed on him but I think he will benefit most by improving his game and experience with us," added Yorath. 

"He has got what it takes to make it at the highest level and his temperament is fantastic."

Bromby joined the South Yorkshire club from non-league Liversedge in 1998 and has made nearly 50 appearances since making his Owls debut in December 2000.
