At last! Coventry City takeover offer made

At last! Coventry City takeover offer made

After the seemingly never-ending saga of letters sent without being on headed paper, emails not received and mixed messages over who actually attended meetings, Coventry City's owners SISU have received a formal offer to take over the club from the Gary Hoffman-led consortium.

As evidenced by Saturday's Ricoh Arena demonstrations against the current regime it looks as though matters are finally coming to a head at the club although at this stage few fans would be confident in SISU accepting the deal straight away and indeed there are to be plenty of hurdles left to jump with neither party having mastered any of the modern means of communication, instead negotiations seem to be taking place through the pages of the Coventry Telegraph.

Coventry City chairman Ken Dulieu said in a statement on Tuesday night: "We can confirm that the club has received a letter from Gary Hoffman`s associates.

"The letter raises many questions and the board`s duty will be to seek further clarification, in particular regarding the transparency of investors` identities and capability of funding."

Andy Thorn, playing the waiting game like everybody else over the takeover and potential transfers, at least has some positive news on his injured players with Ben Turner among those set to get a reserve team runout in some specially arranged fixtures over the next few weeks.
