Kroenke ready to join Arsenal lockdown

Stan Kroenke is close to agreeing to join forces with the Arsenal board.

Arsenal managing director Keith Edelman has revealed American investor Kroenke could sign up to the board's new lock-down agreement.

Kroenke - who holds around a 12% stake - is keen to "form a closer relationship with the club" and may support the board's not to sell any more shares.

But Arsenal, who already have a marketing alliance with Colorado Rapids who play in the United States Major Soccer League, have rebuffed suggestions they could follow the likes of Chelsea on an American tour.

Boss Arsene Wenger said: "I am not a big fan of that.

"You travel a lot, you do not prepare properly and do not promote your brand a lot more, but you make some money. That is the only advantage."
