Williams: Blackburn continuing takeover talks

Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams admits they're actively seeking fresh investment and takeover talks are continuing.

Williams told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "Yes, there are. There is interest but these things take a long time to evaluate.

"The periods that precede formal due diligence are vitally important because you need to make sure that you are talking to the principals of interested parties, and that those principals understand what the requirements are on the current owner's side of the fence.

"As I speak to you today, there are three or four different discussions going on with interested parties, but I've got nothing concrete to say that would indicate a sale is imminent.

"But that can literally change with a phonecall."
