Billionaire Shahid Khan delighted completing Fulham takeover

NFL supremo Shahid Khan is delighted with his £150 million Fulham takeover.

The Pakistan-born car mogul is set to be unveiled tomorrow after buying out former Harrods owner Mohamed Fayed.

Khan, who also owns American football side Jacksonville Jaguars, is thought to be worth around £1.7billion.

He said: "Fulham is the perfect club at the perfect time for me.

"I want to be clear, I do not view myself so much as the owner of Fulham, but a custodian of the club on behalf of its fans.

"My priority is to ensure the club and Craven Cottage each have a viable and sustainable Premier League future that fans of present and future generations can be proud of.

"We will manage the club's financial and operational affairs with prudence and care, with youth development and community programs as fundamentally important elements of Fulham's future."
