£3millon wanted for Madjid

A bid of £1.3 was turned down last week after Charlton Athletic came sniffing around but ideally Wednesday would like to keep the player unless they get a club-record fee for him.

Bougherra missed defeats at Manchester City and Sunderland after picking up a calf problem at Derby and the former Crewe man has been sorely missed since.


Everton have also been linked with the player but according to chairman Dave Allen, there are a few others who are making their interest known as well.


Meanwhile, Deon Burton has claimed his fifth goal of the season after he got a touch to Chris Brunt's free-kick on Saturday after it was initially credited to the Northern Ireland winger.
