London: Former Birmingham City director Sammy Yu of Hong Kong is heading a consortium that is interested in buying English football club Sheffield on Wednesday.

Yu is in talks to purchase the club from current owner Milan Mandaric.

Sheffield Wednesday finished 18th last season in the second division and have not played in the top flight of English football since 1999-2000.

Yu`s interest in the Owls follows recent reports that he had ended a bid to take over Birmingham City.
