Lee Bullen is adamant that he has not heard anything from his Sheffield Wednesday chairman about a potential Sunderland move for Morgan Fox.
Wednesday are reported to have rejected a bid in the region of £200,000 from Sunderland for the left-back, who Bullen insisted earlier this week will not be leaving Hillsborough.
But asked if there had been any sort of follow up from the Mackems, whose desire to strengthen in Fox’s position before Monday’s transfer deadline for lower league clubs is no secret, the Owls caretaker manager told his side’s official Facebook page: “I’ve heard nothing about it other than what I’ve read in newspapers.
“I’ve come off Twitter so I don’t know, I’ve just seen bits and pieces in newspapers… what other people have told me.
“I’ll be 100 per cent honest with you, the chairman (Dejphon Chansiri) has not mentioned a thing to me about Morgan Fox and Sunderland.”
Sheffield Wednesday have already allowed one left-back, Matt Penney, depart since the transfer window closed for Premier League and Championship clubs.
Penney joined FC St. Pauli on a season-long deal, leaving Fox as the only natural in the pair’s position – although the Owls do have a January recall option.
