To say Sheffield Wednesday are in a bit of a financial predicament would be a huge understatement.
The Owls were placed under a soft embargo over the summer and are expected to face another one in the coming months because of Financial Fair Play regulations.
In fact, it is believed that the only way they would be able to avoid any sanctions would be to win promotion to the Premier League – something that does not appear too likely at the moment.
Selling players, such as the likes of Adam Reach, would have helped to ease the pressure, however, the Hillsborough outfit are yet to see anyone depart.
And, according to a report by The Sheffield Star, it appears there is a reason as to why no one has left the club.
It is claimed that ‘since last summer and including the current transfer window, the Owls have received no official bids for their prized assets.’
It comes as a bit of a surprise to hear that Sheffield Wednesday have not had any official bids for any of their players this winter.
The likes of Reach and Barry Bannan are thought to have attracted interest as January started to come around, with many believing the Owls could have lost them.
With the Hillsborough outfit set to face more financial problems anyway in the coming months, it may be a blessing in disguise for the club to keep their best players now and push as hard as possible for a place in the Premier League next season – despite it being extremely unlikely at this stage.
