Sheffield Wednesday go into today’s transfer deadline day with obvious concerns.
With chairman Dejphon Chansiri having confirmed a transfer embargo at Monday’s fans forum, we continue to be in discussions with the EFL over the situation but it has been in place since April apparently and in hindsight that makes a lot of sense when it comes to our quiet summer – the angle of trimming the group and spending – but also presumed permanent deals that were in place suddenly falling quiet, ergo Federico Venancio.
The BBC report that we lost £20million in 2016/17 which was a £15million increase on the previous year.
With the transfer window shutting this evening, the obvious concerns are player sales and seeing the likes of Barry Bannan and Fernando Forestieri move on, possibly not even at their market values as we seek a quick fix for our problems.
Speculation has been rife all summer about possible departures but with the Times linking Forestieri with a possible switch to Cardiff City yesterday, I think Wednesday fans can expect a battering of rumours over the next few hours.
In a new shirt and on a new pitch are the only things that should gain a reaction until 6pm would be my humble advice.
