Former Wednesday player, boss and potential investor Chris Turner has revealed that this week is a ‘massive’ one for the club off the pitch.

Turner, who is involved with Certified Oilfield Rentals, the group looking to invest in Wednesday, has told the Yorkshire Evening Post that COR are hoping to produce funds of an initial £2 million downpayment this week.

In an interview with the Evening Post, he said: ‘These are complicated negotiations and we need to come up with something this week that satisfies the club. The bank are happy with the proposals from the investors, but now they have to come through with the money and get the deal done.’

The claims won’t go down too well with Wednesdayites, who have seen numerous ‘deadlines’ come and go in the search for much-needed investment into the club.

But Owls chairman Howard Wilkinson has stated that talks with COR, as well as other potential investors, are on-going.

COR first revealed their interest a number of weeks ago but the club is still waiting for a promised downpayment of £2m to show their commitment to a takeover of the club.

The money has yet to go into the Owls’ bank though as problems continue over who, exactly, is going to pay the money initially.
