Owls Investment Deal Revealed

Owls Investment Deal Revealed

Details have today been revealed about an American investment company that have been in talks regarding a takeover over Wednesday since the Autumn.

The Yorkshire Post has this morning revealed that Chicago-based Club 9 Sports have been in discussions with Owls chairman Lee Strafford for months in a bid to tie up a takeover of the Championship club.

Of course, we've been here before, but it's believed that the current deal has brought the Owls closer to vital investment than ever before.

The proposed deal would see Strafford remain as club chairman and Nick Parer keep his role of chief executive.

It would also wipe out half of the club's reported £22 million debt thanks to a major new share issue which is set for new investors to put new cash into the club in line with a deal with the Co-op, Wednesday's bank and largest creditor.

The Chicago-based Club 9 Sports is a joint venture between a sports management company and a merchant bank and was brought to the attention of the club by Inner Circle Sports.

An update is expected to follow on the official SWFC website and, of course, here on Vital Sheffield Wednesday.

After whats happened to Portsmouth and Notts County and the big take overs, I for one am glad we are taking our time.

Definitely agree with that modge, much rather do it properly, wipe out half the debts sounds more realistic than being told we're going to have £100m to spend and win the champions league in 3 years!!
