Sheffield Wednesday’s players have been paid the wages that were previously left unpaid by the club’s owners, according to journalist Alan Nixon.
Sheff Wed. Payments to players who left are now sorted. That should help massively …

It had previously been reported by The Yorkshire Post that some of the first-team squad were considering leaving the club over their unpaid wages, but Nixon’s update will be a huge relief for the club’s supporters moving forwards.
That same report from The Yorkshire Post claimed that some senior players were considering handing in two-week period of written notice.
It was a forgetful campaign last term for Sheffield Wednesday, as they were relegated from the Championship on the final day of the 2020/21 season after a draw with Derby County.
Darren Moore will be looking to win promotion back into the second-tier at the first time of asking this term, with their new season set to get underway on Saturday 7th August.
Sheffield Wednesday are set to face Charlton Athletic in their first match of the 2021/22 campaign, in what is likely to be a tricky test up against Nigel Adkins’ side at The Valley.
What was the score when Sheffield Wednesday last played each of these 25 teams?
This will be an encouraging update for the Sheffield Wednesday supporters to hear of this summer.
There rightly will have been slight concern heading into the new League One season, as there was real uncertainty as to whether some of their first-team players would remain at Hillsborough over the dispute on the unpaid wages.
But this will be a slight relief for the Hillsborough faithful, and it means they can now switch their attentions to winning promotion back into the Championship at the first time of asking.
If Darren Moore can get the best out of his current group of senior players, then you would imagine that they’ll have every chance of returning to the second-tier relatively swiftly.
