The Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri has no plans to sell the club right now, according to Alan Nixon.

There has been speculation that Diego Della Valle, the former owner of Fiorentina, is interested in buying the Owls from Chansiri

However, those remain as yet unverified.

And when asked if he has heard anything regarding a potential takeover at Hillsborough, Nixon tweeted:

Chansiri is under mounting pressure at Wednesday, after both he and the club were charged with misconduct by the English Football League in relation to the organisation’s Profit & Sustainability rules.

And, if found guilty, the Owls could be hit with a points deduction rumoured to be up to 21.

A billionaire former shoemaker, Della Valle reigned for 17 years at Fiorentina.

The 66-year-old acquired the Tuscan side in 2002 and oversaw the club’s return to Serie A from the Italian third division.

Under Della Valle, Fiorentina qualified twice for the Champions League but were also implicated in the match-fixing scandal which rocked Italian football in 2006.

Nixon, who writes a weekly transfer column in the Sun on Sunday newspaper, was the first to report on Wednesday’s Steve Bruce interest, shortly before the now Newcastle United manager was hired by the Owls last year.
