Ali Syed closing in on Blackburn takeover

Ahsan Ali Syed is closing in on his takeover of Blackburn Rovers.

The People says Ali Syed is ready to tie up a takeover deal for Blackburn Rovers this week - as he speeds through his swoop to beat off two rivals.

The Bahrain-based Indian investor is close to agreeing the package before his period of exclusivity runs out today.

Frantic negotiations have gone on over the past few days - with the deal coming back from the verge of collapse after the BBC aired allegations about Syed's past life in London.
