Sheffield Wednesday owner Dejphon Chansiri is securing a debt against the club's Hillsborough Stadium, reports BBC Radio Sheffield.
A pending charge against the stadium - a legal way of securing a loan - was lodged with the Land Registry on 30 September.
It means the Owls' ground, which was bought by Chansiri for £60m to try to ensure the Championship club did not breach spending rules, is at risk of being sold if repayments are not kept.
The inclusion of the profits in Wednesday's 2017-18 accounts, despite the ground being sold a year later, led to the club being deducted 12 points for the 2020-21 season.
An independent disciplinary panel found that the club were guilty of an historic breach of the Championship's profitability and sustainability rules.
Wednesday have signalled their intention to appeal against the ruling.
