Wednesday have today confirmed that Howard Wilkinson will continue his role as chairman of the club.
Wilkinson was given the role of 'interim' chairman in May following the resignation of former chairman Lee Strafford.
He was only meant to be in the role until the start of the new Football League season - this Saturday.
But the Owls have today revealed that Wilkinson, who's also the LMA chairman, will continue his role to help stabalise the club.
Wilkinson said: 'I am personally delighted to carry on as Chairman of Sheffield Wednesday. Everybody knows that I have very strong feelings for this club and it is an honour to have played an active role this summer, working with Alan Irvine and Nick Parker.
'We have faced a number of challenges, both on and off the field, but we are fortunate in having a terrific manager who I'm confident can do the job. It is our intention to mount a strong challenge for promotion. Your support of the team is invaluable and has never ceased to amaze. Believe me, it is really appreciated.
'Off the field, Nick Parker and I have worked very closely along with other members of the board to try to ensure the long term future of Sheffield Wednesday FC. I know that some of the news that we have to read this summer has not been pleasant, too much of it focused on the past, but we must start to look forward and put an end to the blame game.
'I am well aware of our great traditions and potential and in that respect I shall seek to continue to offer my input where appropriate. It is crucial we get the right sort of investment. Even more, it's vital that new people are the right people. They have to be sufficiently well funded to guarantee sustained ongoing investment on a long term basis. It's even more important that new investors are people who recognise their responsibility to the history, traditions and fans of Sheffield Wednesday.
'Right now, I look forward to the start of the season and hopefully celebrating with fellow Wednesdayites a successful start to the campaign.'
