Rovers Takeover Talks Underway?!?!
It has been quiet for some weeks on such talk, but all the news today is of a possible takeover of Blackburn Rovers Football Club!
Although the club have confirmed (and on the official Blackburn Rovers website to boot!) that talks are underway and progressing on a possible Rovers takeover, Rovers Chairman John Williams insists a takeover is not imminent:
"We're willing sellers in discussions with third parties and those discussions have naturally progressed over a period of time.
"We've made some progress with a third party but it is very difficult because of all of the formalities involved.
"At present there is nothing else of particular significance to report."
No actual sources of these potential investors are being revealed but there have been reports of some serious interests in the club both home and abroad, with American investors coming into the English game more and more.
As the BBC.co.uk summarised any potential deal at Ewood Park hinges on whether the trustees of the late Uncle Jack Walker, the former owner and chairman, approve the sale.
No doubt there will be A LOT more to come on this issue! But how do you feel about it? As always discuss below…
