American investor serious over Coventry takeover

American multi-millionaire Preston Haskell IV is keen to see a proposed takeover of League One Coventry City progress.

The property tycoon was at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday to watch Coventry's 1-1 draw against Brentford.

Haskell told the Coventry Telegraph: "I'm deadly serious about doing this and want to get it done as soon as possible."

Three members of Coventry supporters' group the Sky Blue Trust also held a positive meeting with Haskell on Saturday before the home clash against the Bees.

In a statement, the trust said: "Mr Haskell gave a short outline of his plans to invest in Coventry City FC and the Ricoh Arena.

"He emphasised the importance of proper involvement of supporters in the ownership and running of the club and in transparent communications."

Coventry are currently in administration and have been deducted ten points by the Football League in accordance with their rules and regulations.
