Sheffield Wednesday have denied making a bid for Plymouth striker Micky Evans.Sheffield Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock says he has not made a bid for Plymouth Argyle striker Micky Evans.
The former St Johnstone and Dundee United manager has denied reports that he has tabled £50,000 bid to his former club for the 32-year-old.
It was suggested that The Owls were looking for a replacement for hit-man Adam Proudlock after the former Wolves man was ruled out for the season with a broken ankle.
Reports suggested that Evans, who has not been a regular under Pilgrims boss Bobby Williamson, could be a target of his former Home Park boss.
Sturrock, however, has put an end to the speculation by stating that no offer has been made to Plymouth for Evans.
"We have not made a bid," Sturrock told the club's official website.
"I'm reading things in papers today and this is a time when there will be a lot of speculation.
"We're sitting with 12 games to go, people know the importance of a couple of fresh faces so surmises always sell papers. That's all it is at this moment in time.
"Anyone who's going out of contract at Plymouth Argyle and players around the periphery at Southampton will be fair game. It is easy for a journalist to make up."
The former Scotland striker also denied his club's links with Macclesfield's in-form attacking duo of Matthew Tipton and Jonathan Parkin.
