Geoff Sheard, the man leading the consortium which is trying to buy Sheffield Wednesday, claims that he could be in full control within days.

This comes after supporters group Wednesdayite, agreed to sell their 10% claim in the club.

Sheard has also already agreed deals with Owls director Geoff Hulley, Keith Addy and ex-chairman Dave Allen who hold a 30% shareholding between them.

“This is a significant stage in the acquisition of the football club and hopefully in a couple of days we’ll have some significant news” Sheard told BBC Radio Sheffield.

Sheard is pleased that Wednesdayite have agreed to sell their stake:

“It’s great that their members have voted to sell and I thank them for that but as everyone is aware we are also talking to the other parties,” added Sheard.

Wednesdayite chairman, Daryl Keys said:

“I hope this sends a resounding message to the club, its directors and the fan base at large that we have never been a stumbling block to any investor.”
