SHEFFIELD, England - A seafood magnate from Thailand was close to becoming the latest foreign owner of an English football club on Thursday after agreeing to a takeover of second-tier team Sheffield Wednesday.Dejphon Chansiri, whose family controls Thai Union Frozen Group, has been in talks with Wednesday since the end of 2014 and has already made funds available for the club to recently bring in two players on loan.Financial details of the deal to buy out current owner Milan Mandaric were not disclosed.Dejphon said he was attracted by the potential of a club whose Hillsborough stadium has a capacity of about 40,000 and is one of the biggest, most high-profile grounds in the country.I can assure all our supporters that I will be working extremely hard to bring the success that I already sense from my short time in your city our supporters so desperately crave, Dejphon said in a statement on the club website.The northern team has not been in the Premier League since 2000 and won the last of four topflight titles in 1930. Its last major trophy was the League Cup in 1991.The takeover is subject to approval by the Football League, which runs the three divisions below the Premier League.Thai Union is the worlds largest producer of tuna, according to Sheffield Wednesday. International brands controlled by the company include John West, King Oscar, Petit Navire, Parmentier, Mareblu, and Century.Another English team, Premier League Leicester, already has Thai owners — the Srivaddhanaprabha family.Sheffield United, a fierce local rival of Wednesday and also a team seeking to return to Englands lucrative top division, is co-owned by a member of Saudi Arabias royal family — Prince Abdullah bin Mosaad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.Mandaric rescued Wednesday from financial ruin when he took control in 2010, helping the club wipe out debts that were in excess of 20 million pounds ($30 million). But he has been looking to sell the club, with a deal with Azerbaijani businessman Hafiz Mammadov collapsing last summer.From the first time I met Dejphon, I felt he was the right person for this fantastic club, Mandaric said. His business expertise and passion made him stand out from the other interested parties.Representatives of Thai Union attended the teams 0-0 draw against Birmingham last weekend, which leaves the team ninth in the 24-team League Championship. Wednesday is nine points off the playoff places as it seeks a return to the Premier League after a 15-year absence.Dejphon said his son, Att, was a mascot at the recent game against Blackpool.I have made the same promise to him as I do our supporters — he will not let me forget this until we are back in the Premier League, Dejphon said.

TORONTO -- The details of James van Riemsdyks vague injury got a little bit clearer, thanks to Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. Van Riemsdyk is dealing with back spasms that are likely to cause the forward to miss his second straight game Thursday when the Carolina Hurricanes visit Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Hes considered day-to-day but theres no specific recovery time. "He did skate (Wednesday), and we felt that was an improvement," Carlyle said. "But hes kind of plateaued or flattened out here, and were not going to put him on the ice in a situation where we think were going to possibly have him have any setback." Carlyle had previously said he was "surprised" that the injury occurred and called it upper-body. He said van Riemsdyk did not suffer the injury in a game. "He got up the other morning, got to the rink, he had back spasms," Carlyle said. "Thats why it wasnt a hockey-related injury. We all know that skaters get skaters back. Its one of the things that hockey players have to deal with over the course of the season." Van Riemsdyk has five goals and an assist in his first six games of the season. He took Monday off as a so-called maintenance day and did not play Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild. The 24-year-old left Wednesdays practice early because he was "pretty stiff," according to Carlyle. Carlyle does not believe vaan Riemsdyk has a history of this kind of problem.dddddddddddd "I just think this is one-off for him, specifically," he said. "Because he has back spasms one day, is that a history? I dont know that. I dont think we can predict that yet. Its not something thats been noted in his medical file. But I would guarantee you there isnt a player in there that hasnt come to the rink with a bad back." Dealing with players being out of the lineup is nothing new for the Leafs. Theyre already without wingers Nikolai Kulemin (bone chip in right ankle) and David Clarkson (10-game suspension), enforcer Frazer McLaren (broken right pinky finger) and defenceman Mark Fraser (knee). That has meant calling up players like Josh Leivo, Trevor Smith and David Broll from the AHLs Marlies and plugging them into the lineup. Van Riemsdyks injury earlier this week just opened up another spot. "With us, weve been constantly having to make adjustments to our roster based upon the availability," Carlyle said. "Weve been dealt a few of those situations that we call adversity, but thats to be expected early in the season and every team in the league has their fair share of injuries. "For us, we have some young kids now that are stepping into the lineup who are getting an opportunity to show us what they have, and theyre trying to earn the trust of the coaching staff."
