Sheffield Wednesday fans have turned to Twitter to have their say on the latest news involving the Owls. 

This comes as Wednesday writer for The Sheffield Star, Alex Miller, tweeted a link to an article of his and captioned it ‘big news.’

The news that Miller was referring to involves Wednesday’s transfer embargo, as Miller reports the club has been ‘released’ from the restrictions imposed on them by the EFL.

This follows the club publishing their accounts earlier this week, which announced a £24 million loss in operating costs and the decision came a month prior to Sheffield Wednesday’s first game of the season in League One against Charlton Athletic.

Fans were quick to give their thoughts on the news…
