Sheffield Wednesday must have had a feeling that a club would come in late for Fernando Forestieri.
Being under a transfer embargo and having already sold two of their better players, the little Italian could be the third out in a bit to balance the books after some frivolous spending from the Yorkshire side.
The fee reported should be one that Wednesday will have to regrettably accept knowing they need to raise capital to avoid any financial penalties.
Forestieri is arguably their most influential player and will be a player few are able to replace.
If he does go, then you have to seriously worry about the fortunes for the Hillsborough side for the rest of what looks set to be a very long season for the club.
