The day of reckoning is nearly here
Blackburn Rovers sale looks all set to be completed in the next few weeks as Venkys (The VH Group) have all but won the race to buy the club.
News of fresh investment will likely be met with mass approval as the long takeover saga looks to be drawing to a close.
After much speculation, rumour mongering and a lot of false dawns, the Rovers official site confirmed the news.
The chairperson of Venkys even chipped in with their own statement.
Venkys chairperson Anuradha J Desai said - 'We expect to be the first Indian company to acquire a Premier League team and we are particularly delighted that the team is Blackburn Rovers, with whom we believe we have many shared values and ambitions.'
Rovers chairman John Williams added on the club's official website: 'A series of meetings, including discussions with the Premier League, have followed an extensive due diligence process.
'Both parties are hopeful that the transaction will be completed in November.'
The group which specialises in poultry farming and pharmaceuticals have undergone a stern examination so must be a good fit for what the Walkers want.
