Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore is set to meet with Dejphon Chansiri for transfer talks in the coming weeks.
That’s according to a report by Yorkshire Live, who claim that the 47-year-old manager will hold talks with the Owls owner in the coming week in order to establish his summer transfer budget.
At present, the report states that Moore is in the dark as to how much he will be allowed to spend in the upcoming transfer window, while also touching upon the fact that Wednesday are still currently under a transfer embargo – although explain that this is expected to be lifted prior to the transfer market opening next month.
Following a miserable 2020/21 Championship campaign for Wednesday, which saw the Owls finish in 24th place in the second tier standings, as well as having points deducted for breaching financial regulations, fans will undoubtedly be hoping for a fresh start in League One.
Something that should help the club feel as if it is rejuvenated ahead of next season is the sheer amount of players who will be leaving upon the expiry of their current deals, with no less than 17 first-team players due to depart Hillsborough next month.
In theory, this should be good news for Moore, as, with a number of players on extremely inflated wages – such as the £35k-per-week Jordan Rhodes, the £26k-per-week Izzy Brown and the £22k-per-week Tom Lees to name but a few – expected to leave the club, one would imagine that a large chunk of wage budget will be freed up for the 47-year-old this summer.
However, with Chansiri likely to want to avoid a repeat of being unable to pay the playing staff, as was the case on a number of occasions this season, it is questionable just how much of the money saved in wages will be given back to Moore to spend.
Regardless, fans of Wednesday will undoubtedly be begging for some positive news to come from Moore and Chansiri’s talks – in order for them to be able to begin looking forward to their club’s future once again.
