Wednesday chairman Dave Allen has revealed the club are in talks with three potential investors and hope to have a deal tied up for the start of next season.

The Owls supremo revealed at the start of the month that Wednesaday would commence talks with an interested party at the end of January, but has since revealed that three potential investors are interested in the club.

And Allen is currently in talks with all three and is hoping a deal can be struck up by the start of next season. He expects the board to have made a decision on a way forward in the coming months.

He told the official SWFC site: ‘We’ve sat down, talked and looked at the valuation of the club. Over the next few months the board will choose which of the deals we believe to be the best way forward for Sheffield Wednesday Football Club. I think between now and the middle of the summer something will definately happen.’

Allen has already been linked with a potential investor in China who’s involved with a casino business while boxing promoter Dennis Hobson has also expressd his desire to invest alongside a Jersey consortium.
