DAVE Jones has refused to be drawn on whether or not the Owls have made a bid for Millwall forward Dany N’Guessan.

It has been claimed than Wednesday and Charlton are rivals for the 25-year-old who is currently out of the Lions side and is unlikely to play for them at Hillsborough tomorrow.

But Jones has a policy of, in general, declining to discuss tranfer-market affairs unless something is cut and dried.

N’Guessan was left out of the Millwall squad for Tuesday’s 2-1 win at Peterborough.

Manager Kenny Jackett has said: “Dany’s not happy at the club and he does want to move on. It’s a tough situation because he wants to go to Charlton but we’ve had better offers from other clubs.

“I decided to go with Darius Henderson and Andy Keogh [up front] at the start of the season. That’s my choice.”

N’Guessan used to be known mainly as a speedy winger but more recently has made his name as a striker - one of the positions Jones is still looking to strengthen.

Jones said “I don’t know, maybe” when asked if they was a chance of another player coming in before the weekend.

“We’re working really hard,” he said. “We’re waiting on one or two things. Things change. Teams can get beaten or get an injury. You thought you’d got them [players], then you haven’t. We have lists and we just keep chasing down.”
