Darren Moore is set to hold crunch talks with Dejphon Chansiri regarding Sheffield Wednesday’s transfer budget for next season.
Wednesday are preparing for life back in League One after being relegated from the Championship on the final day of the season, following a 3-3 away draw with Derby County.
A host of first-team players are out of contract, including the likes of Jordan Rhodes, Adam Reach and Kadeem Harris, with an overhaul expected to take place this summer.
The Owls obviously won’t want to follow in Sunderland’s footsteps and stay in League One, and will look to come straight back up next season like Hull City did this term.
A clear direction is needed, though, and according to Yorkshire Live, crunch talks are now expected to be held between Moore and Chansiri regarding a transfer budget for next season.
Senior club officials expect the transfer embargo to be lifted before the transfer window opens, but it is claimed that Moore is likely to rely heavily on loans as well as free agents.
If Wednesday can sort out their off-field financial problems, then they would automatically be favourites to go straight back up next season due to the size of the club.
It is vital that they resolve these issues and give Moore all the right tools to work with next season, as the Owls look to plot an immediate escape from League One.
It will be such a competitive league, though, especially if Sunderland fail to go up via the play-offs. There are some excellent teams at that level.
