Pearson Shows Owls Interest

Pearson Shows Owls Interest

Former Hull City chairman Adam Pearson is said to have held discussions with the Wednesday board over a possible takeover of the club according to BBC Radio Sheffield.

The 42-year-old is keen to get back in to football after selling his controlling stake in the KC Stadium club to Paul Duffen in the summer.

And the Owls are said to be among a number of clubs from the Championship and League One on Pearson's hit list, after he tried and failed to buy out Leeds United in the close season.

Pearson declined to comment on the speculation to Radio Sheffield but is said to have held a number of discussions with Owls chairman Dave Allen and the rest of the board at S6 over possible investment.

Allen is actively seeking fresh investment in the club, and could be just one step away after entering discussions with fans group Wednesdayite, who he blamed for holding the club back previously.

Pearson made his name in football as a director at Leeds United before helping transform the fortunes of the Tigers' from a League Two club to a comfortable Championship club with a brand new stadium.

Lets hope we get some much needed investment soon. Can't see us doing anything with the team as present. Did the team think it was a 5:15 kick off again?

Significant investment is needed rather than someone who is just able to facilitate the debt without investing heavily. Don't think this man's the answer.

Worryingly, he'd be a decent Chairman for a League One club... How did Peter Gilbert ever become a professional footballer? Still, a win next game and it'll all be sunny again.
