EFL Statement Following Bolton Wanderers Temporary Suspension Over Sale

In the past hour it has come to light that the deal to sell the club to Football Ventures has been temporarily suspended.

An EFL Spokesman said:

“We are aware of the terms of an Order granted earlier today in the High Court in Manchester in respect of Bolton Wanderers.

“The League is not a party to the proceedings and we are currently liaising with the Administrators of the Club to understand the full extent of any implications to the proposed transfer of assets.

“We are extremely frustrated by this late development with the deal so close to completion, and our focus must remain firmly on ensuring the long-term future of the football club.

“We will be making no further comment at this time.”
