ACCRINGTON Stanley investor Ilyas Khan has again written to fellow shareholders and directors as the takeover rumbles on.
The Hong Kong millionaire, born in the town, has a 15 per cent stake in Stanley and has emphasised his desire for everyone connected with the club to have some say in its future.
Businessman Dave O’Neill is the frontrunner to buy the majority of chairman Eric Whalley’s 56 per cent shares but it has been ongoing for about six weeks and, by the time the Observer went to press, nothing had been resolved.
Mr Khan said: "I continue to be concerned about the financial state of affairs at the club and believe that the club needs long term equity capital.
"I reiterate my willingness to invest £200,000 in buying newly issued shares of the company and I believe other people - fans in particular - will step up as well.
"It may not be a huge amount individually, but cumulatively it all helps.
"I have written to the club again and its directors this week to ask for an up-to-date statement about ASFC’s financial state of affairs and to repeat my earlier offer to invest. I hope that Mr O’Neill’s purchase of Mr Whalley’s shares can get completed to their mutual satisfaction and that the club does not incur any further debts."
The club still believe Mr O’Neill’s purchase of the majority of the shares will go through soon.
