Chansiri rejected the offer to sell Sheffield Wednesday to Alonso

Tue 09 February 2021 | 8:43

Dejphon Chansiri has rejected an offer from Erik Alonso to buy the club.

Owner of the management company WBD Sports

Erik Alonso

has offered between £25m and £30m for

Sheffield Wednesday

and owner and chairman of the club

Dejphon Chansiri

has rejected the offer.

Alonso said: "Unfortunately, due to forces around the club, it became untenable to continue, especially as the chances of my reputation being affected became apparent.”

Although Chansiri confirmed him as an advisor in December, he downplayed his role after they parted ways and said:

"It is strange. He has never been official, so how is he going to resign?"

It has been said that Alonso is backed by a wealthy Indonesian consortium who are interested in buying a football club in the UK.

Wednesday have had financial problems in the last year and the PFA contacted the club in December over the late payment of November’s player wages. They also started this season on minus six points for breaking EFL financial regulations.
