I spoke to the manager at the time and there was a little bit of interest but he was like 'We want to keep you'," began Whelan. "I was more than happy to do that. I finished training, this is on the last day of the window, went home and then got a phone call about 5pm saying that the club had agreed a fee. "I spoke to Brian Laws again and he basically said the club had agreed the sale behind his back a little bit. Once that happened I was questioning what to do. Did I go and speak or do I dig my heels in. I think at the time Stoke were second in the Championship. Wednesday were about mid-table. “The year before I left Wednesday that season we finished a few points outside the play-offs. It was all about kicking on for the next season but then of course we sold Chris Brunt, one of our key players, to West Brom. "I was thinking do I sit in and stay or go for chance to get to the Premier League with Stoke. It was all last-minute and a bit up-in-the-air but it turned out to be the right move for me in the end." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
