It sounds an unlikely combination but Austrian-born Danning insists she is deadly serious.

Owner Milan Mandaric is willing to sell if he believes someone else can take the Hillsborough club forward.

Danning and her husband Horst Lasse are astute players in the business and sports world and 10 years ago rescued a German ice hockey club from bankruptcy. She said: "We have been looking into buying an English team with a strong fan base and great potential.

"Sheffield Wednesday matches those ideals. It is one of the most famous names in English football and, even though it has suffered in the last few years, we believe we can give it the energy needed to get to the Premier League.

"We have been studying this for the past month and if negotiations go well we hope to conclude an agreement to buy the club."
