Blackburn unaware of Ronnie plans

Blackburn Rovers are unaware of any planned takeover bid from sportswear supremo Chris Ronnie.

The 45-year-old Scot, who is the chief executive of JJB Sports, has reportedly put together a team of foreign and domestic investors, with a view to holding talks with the Walker Trustees about a possible £25 million buy-out.

However, the Lancashire Evening Telegraph says a source has indicated takeover discussions have not as yet involved Ronnie, or anybody claiming to represent him.

The source said: "The sale process continues and there are a number of people talking to the trustees' advisers.

"However, Chris Ronnie's name has never cropped up to my knowledge at any stage in the process."
