Co-Op Extends Debt To Aid Owls

Co-Op Extends Debt To Aid Owls

Wednesday's major creditor, the Co-Operative Bank, have stepped in to help the Owls following relegation by extending the debt by £3 million to cover next season's losses.

It was thought that Wednesday's best players may have to be sold to cover the costs of relegation from the Championship last season.

But Alan Irvine will be able to keep the Owls' star players following a deal struck with teh Co-Op, as reported in today's Yorkshire Post.

It's understood that Wednesday already owe the Co-Op over £21m.

But a deal is thought to have been agreed to extend this by £3m to cover loss of revenue in npower League One next term.

It's good news for Wednesday in terms of keeping their best players - and keeping their chances of a swift return to the Championship firmly in tact.

But it means there will be that little bit of extra pressure to return at the first attempt in 2010-11, to try and make that money back through television revenue and other revenue which comes thanks to promotion.

And Wednesday could still sell players such as Lee Grant, Marcus Tudgay and Mark Beevers should 'good' offers come in for the trio, or any other players, such is the Owls' financial situation.

They will do anything to make sure that we dont go into administration. Grierson has family at the bank who's head would be on the block.

we are allowed to do this because we service the loan you dumpling. if we stopped servicing the loan then i guess they would pull the plug

Exactly Hirsty's Shinpads, the size of the debt is largely irrevelant, if the club is run profitably (which it is) and can service the debt (which it can) it's not a problem. Let's list all 92 league clubs and the amount of debt they carry and Wednesday wouldn't be anywhere near the top. Stop exaggerating the issue BFL and worry about your own shower of a club and how that amazing squad KB has built will avoid relegation next season.
