Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine has turned down a bid for striker Marcus Tudgay, with Blackpool and Burnley believed to be interested.[LNB] But Irvine, who has already had to sell goalkeeper Lee Grant to Burnley to help pay off the club's debt to HMRC, is adamant the 27-year-old will not be sold on the cheap.[LNB]Talking to the Sheffield Star, he said: "A club did show an interest (in Tudgay). They were well short of anything that would tempt us.[LNB]"I think everyone is looking at the Lee Grant situation and thinking that Wednesday are a selling club now. We're not.[LNB]"We're not in a position where we have to sell. It was a Premier League club who made an enquiry (about Tudgay) but they didn't make a Premier League club's offer."
