Garry Monk’s plan to sit down with Dejphon Chansiri to discuss the futures of Sheffield Wednesday’s out of contract players could be impacted by Thursday’s statement from the English Football League.
As it stands, Wednesday have half a team leaving on frees at the end of this season and their charge of misconduct – relating to the sale of the club’s Hillsborough Stadium to its chairman, Chansiri – may not make things any easier.
The Owls face either a fine, a(nother) transfer embargo, docked points, expulsion from the league or a combination of the four if they are found guilty.
And the prospect could put off some of those for whom Sheffield Wednesday hope to agree new contracts.
But what sort of squad would Wednesday be left with heading into next summer, if the worst was to happen and none of them renewed?
