In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has expressed his doubts over the possibility of his old club being sold this summer.
Wednesday were relegated from the Championship last weekend and owner Dejphon Chansiri has since come in for heavy criticism for his role, with fans demanding that he takes a “step back”.
However, The Sun on Sunday (via The 72) have reported that Chansiri has no intention of selling the Yorkshire outfit, although one interested party was quoted a £160m fee in any potential takeover.
Ultimately, for Palmer, there are a lot of reasons for why a sale in this moment of the time is highly unlikely.
Speaking exclusively to FFC about Wednesday’s future, the ex-England international said:
“The size of the club Sheffield Wednesday in League One is not going to be worth the money it’s worth in the Championship or the Premier League, so I doubt very much whether he’s going to sell now.
“He might get a few offers because people will try it on in the position that they’re in and see if he’s willing to sell, but we all know he’s not short of a few quid. He’s talking about righting the wrongs, so let’s see.”
Wednesday supporters wanting some sort of change after this season is very much understandable, and not just because of the club’s relegation to League One.
The instability at the Yorkshire outfit, with constant changes in the dugout, has also probably been a source of frustration.
