Stanley managing director Dave O’Neill says he is stuck in the middle of the battle for ownership and is waiting for Eric Whalley and Ilyas Khan to come to an agreement.
O’Neill says he has bought Whalley’s major shareholding in Stanley and transferred the money over 18 months ago but the agreement hasn’t yet been signed by former chairman Whalley.
"There is a stumbling block between Eric and Ilyas," said O’Neill.
"Eric is waiting for money he believes he is owed by the club, money he has put in over the years.
"He isn’t asking for the money back immediately and won’t hold the club to ransom.
"I have seen the accounts and I agree with him.
"But Ilyas and director Peter Marsden are currently going through the accounts to check all this.
"Because of this, there is a stalemate at the moment where everyone is tip-toeing around and nothing is being resolved.
"I want it resolved as much as anyone.
"The fans are getting on my back but I am dependent on Eric and Ilyas sorting out any differences they have.
"I haven’t been involved with the club for the past month as the manager of my business left and so I have been there although I still take phone calls about the club but Rob (Heys) is running it day-to-day.
"It is unclear what will happen next and I think it will take a mediator to be in a room with me, Eric and Ilyas to thrash this out. That’s the only way I can see it being resolved."
