Transfer Ownership of Sheet

I am an Admin on the Workspace and Owner of a sheet in the workspace.

I want to transfer ownership of the sheet to the workspace owner.

Seems to be an impossible task as there is no owner option to select.

The picture below shows the options I have to transfer to the Admin Level person who also owns the workspace and is licensed.

If I select a person who is shared at the Editor level, I can make them the owner, but I can't make the Admin person the owner.

I want to transfer ownership to the Admin person and leave the workspace.

I removed myself from the workspace and can only hope the ownership changed.

ETA: Nope, would not remove me. So I can't remove myself and I can't transfer it.

    What license does the other person have?

    Also; Before assigning Owner permissions to someone, share the item with them. If the item is in a workspace, the new user with Owner permissions must also have Admin access to the workspace.

    This is an Enterprise system and the the workspace owner is licensed.

    To get around this ridiculous problem, I added the Workspace Owner as an Editor to the sheet and then changed it to make owner. Note that the Workspace Owner is also an Admin on the sheet through the workspace,

    @JIDEATTURRA - thank you for triggering an idea to get around the problem.
