Sheffield Wednesday have denied Sir John Hall is one of the mystery parties interested in a possible summer takeover.
Owls chairman Dave Allen, who recently held further meetings with a Chinese consortium headed by a multi-millionaire casino owner, has confirmed talks are on-going with several other interested parties.
But Owls chief executive Kavan Walker told PA Sport: "We have had no contact from Sir John Hall with regard to investment in Sheffield Wednesday. Talks are ongoing with a number of different parties who are interested in backing the club."
