Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws insists the club will not be 'bullied' into letting star striker Marcus Tudgay secure a move to Premier League new-boys Burnley.
The Owls have already rejected a 'derisory' bid from the Clarets for the 26-year-old, who scored 14 goals in the Championship last season, and have insisted that they have no intention of letting the former Derby
ace leave Hillsbrough this summer.
Tudgay, who joined the club for an undisclosed fee in January 2006, is thought to be keen on a move to Turf Moor with his agent, Darryl Powell, admitting last week that he was considering submitting a transfer request in a bid to force through a move.
However, Laws is adamant that the Championship outfit will not change their stance, irrespective of whether Tudgay asks to leave.
"There is no change in our position; whether a transfer request is made or not, it does not change one jot,"
Laws told the Sheffield Star."The club will not be bullied.
"It's not just about money; with what we are aiming to achieve next season, we value highly the part that Marcus can play in that."
