Sunderland chairman Bob Murray tonight maintained his readiness to sell his stake in the club amid further rumours of Irish interest.
After announcing last week that 'the door is open' to potential investors Sunderland chairman Murray was obliged to formalise the declaration he made last week under Stock Exchange rules.
Murray, who owns 56.8% of shares, confirmed in today's statement that he,
'would be willing to consider a change of control of the company (by selling all or part of his shareholding) subject to this being in the best interests of the company and its shareholders.'
This will of course fuel specualtion that Sunderland are set to receive a takeover bid from an Irish consortium. Click here regarding that rumour and this weeks' poll.
