As has been well-documented over the past few years, the Owls have had serious issues with the authorities over their finances, which is why they were hit with a six-point deduction last season – a penalty that ultimately saw them relegated to League One.
Despite relegation, boss Darren Moore hasn’t been able to make the signings he wanted because of the club being forced to operate under a transfer embargo, because these accounts weren’t submitted.
However, the Yorkshire outfit confirmed today that they had published the accounts, which should result in the lifting of the embargo.
What club do these 21 former Sheffield Wednesday players ply their trade at now?
Therefore, it’s no surprise to see the supporters are delighted by this update as it means Moore should be able to get to work in the market as he looks to build a team that can push for promotion next season.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the update from Twitter…
Thanks Chansri. For finally paying the players, publishing the accounts. Now let's all stop this stupid moaning, get behind Moore and the players' and play the best league one campaign we can create.

Yeah, a brief skim of this isn't a promising read. BUT, hopefully it's enough to lift the embargo and get the wheels moving. We'll go in depth on the podcast as we did last accounts release. #swfc https://t.co/WiZ7sN52Dw
