Sheffield Wednesday are on the verge of a relegation battle heading into the opening of the January transfer window.
Jos Luhukay’s men are five points above the relegation zone, and if their torrid form persists, could well be in the bottom three at the turn of the year.
As with plenty of clubs in the league – and in the rest of Europe – come the new year, players are recruited to try and better the current fortunes of the particular club they join.
You would have imagined that the Owls would be the same, but it might not turn out to be like that for Wednesday.
Speaking in a fans’ forum on Wednesday evening, chairman and owner Dejphon Chansiri admitted that he “can’t guarantee incomings” in January, as well as going on to discuss the potential of player sales, too.

Having had a transfer embargo in the summer lifted on August 17, Wednesday could finally sign players but managed to bring in two loan signings for their first-team.
Fans hoping for more in the new year to avoid a relegation fight could be left wanting after Chansiri’s latest comments.
It is truly a mess at Hillsborough right now.
If Sheffield Wednesday fail to make any changes to their playing squad, in or out, then the inevitable is going to happen.
If you keep doing the same things, you will get the same results, and on current form, that leads to one thing – relegation.
Wednesday need to add; they need to strengthen.
If they are to remain with the current crop, then they will undoubtedly need to improve their performances and more importantly the results if they are to have any chance of staying up, let alone steering clear of a relegation battle.
