Wednesday ‘matched bid’ but Marshall goes to Leicester

Wednesday are believed to have matched Leicester’s £1m transfer window deal for winger Ben Marshall … but the youngster decided on Championship football rather than a return to S6.

Marshall impressed during his loan spell at Hillsborough before returning to parent club, Stoke, with the hope that he might make a Wednesday comeback either on loan or as a permanent signing.

It is understood we then matched the offer of Leicester boss and ex-Owl Nigel Pearson – believed to be £750,000 plus £250,000 add-ons, depending on appearances and promotion – but Marshall is thought to have decided on the guaranteed higher level of football with the Foxes.
