George, son of Wednesday legend David Hirst has attracted the attention on numerous clubs over the past 12 months due to his sublime goal-scoring ability at youth level.
Sheffield Wednesday, in my eyes would be crazy to accept the reported £2 million fee plus add-ons layed down on the table by the Foxes and have quite rightly rejected all in-coming bids.
George; 18, in today's transfer market has the potential to be worth over £10 million, if not more in the short-term future.
Thankfully, due to the influx of cash invested by Chairman Dejphon Chansiri, the Owls have insisted they are now not a selling club. £2 million only four-years ago would have been very difficult to turn down.
Although Hirst still has a lot to prove, a striker of his instinct leading the frontline, could, given time, become a world-class striker. The loan option to Rotherham United would be a fantastic option for both George, Sheffield Wednesday and the Millers.
League One football, is propably an ideal level to play first team football for George to develop his trade. Let's hope both parties can come to a successful agreement. Hirst is more than capable of impressing and scoring at first-team level.
10-months of 'work experience' away from S6 should see Hirst return to Hillsborough a all-round better player.
