Forest Deal Close To Completion

Speculation continues off the field at the City Ground, with American John Jay Moores and fellow American businessman Charles Noell rumoured to be close to completing a takeover of the club worth around £50million.

72 year old Moores is the former owner of Major League Baseballs team the San Diego Padres and made his wealth through computer software development. Fellow businessman Noell owns a horse racing stable with Moores and was previously reported to be part of a consortium, headed up by Moores, that expressed interested in buying Everton Football Club last year.

Meanwhile on the pitch, boss Phillipe Montanier also faces an uncertain future following a poor run of form which has seen the reds pick up just one win in the last eleven matches. The former goal-keeper, who is yet to see his side keep a clean sheet, said his job is to focus on the on-pitch affairs

“We prefer to be focussed on the pitch, it’s the most important because the rest of no control about the ownership. I’m not worried about my position – I have to find more solution”.
