Sheard Eyes Owls Takeover

Sheard Eyes Owls Takeover

Wednesday could well be on the verge of a takeover with media reports today reporting Lancashire-based businessman Geoff Sheard is the front-man behind a multi-million pound bid for the club.

The Owls have long been discussing the need for a takeover, but Wednesdayites have been dealt numerous false dawns in recent years for a number of reasons.

But now there could well be light at the end of the tunnel, with Sheard in discussions with the club about a takeover, with a deal said to be done in the next few days.

Sheard is thought to be the front man of a group looking to clear the Owls' debts and help them climb back up to the Premiership in the coming years, and has already held dicsussions with fans' group Wednesdayite over purchasing their shares at Hillsborough.

Sheard has worked in the kit manufacturing business and on the commercial sides at both Preston and Stoke City and has gathered a number of backers to help finance the deal.

And Wednesday fans are sure to learn more over the move in the coming days and weeks, so keep checking Vital Sheffield Wednesday for all the latest updates.

Sounds the most likely to be true of all the rumours, especially if he's got wednesdayite on side as well as the club.

hope to god this comes off, even though we cant buy any new players, it might spur the current lot on to play a bit better, cause if theres money floating about they will really be playing for there spot in the team

I just hope they'd keep Laws in charge and give him some money to spend, give him a fair crack of the whip!

This is starting to look quite serious. It's difficult not to get very excited. Rumour I heard was that Laws probably wouldn't stay. I'd be gutted to see him leave but if they want to bring in big names, they'll want a big name as manager. Just hope it's not Steve McLaren.
