Owls Continue Club 9 Sports Talks

Owls Continue Club 9 Sports Talks

This week may be all about the on-the-pitch action as Wednesday look to secure Championship survival, but off-the-field talks could prove just as important in the long-run.

It's understood that potential investors Club 9 Sports, and in particular managing partner John Prutch, has spent the week in Sheffield extending talks with Wednesday's main creditors, the Co-Operative Bank.

Club 9 Sports representatives have already been in attendance at Hillsborough with chairman Lee Strafford, discussing possible investment in the club, while also catching the Owls in action.

But this week's discussions with the Co-Operative Bank cement their interest in the club.

The Chicago-based investment firm have already released a statement insisting that their interest isnt' dependent on Wednesday's league status next season, although remaining in the Championship would present the club in a better light, no doubt.

There haven't been any timeframes set yet, should the deal go ahead, and that can only be a good thing for an Owls fan base who are growing tired of all the talk and rumours surrounding the clubs future off the pitch.

The talks continue...
