Allardyce doubts Ali Syed will buy Blackburn

Sam Allardyce can't see Ahsan Ali Syed buying out Blackburn Rovers.

Allardyce says it is "doubtful" that Indian businessman Ahsan Ali Syed will takeover the club.

Syed has been in talks to buy the Ewood Park outfit for £300m but BBC 5 live reported this week he has a trail of unpaid debt in the UK.

Allardyce said: "If it's happening, it's going to happen in the next week or two.

"Whether it does happen seems doubtful, for whatever reason I don't know. I'm not privy to that information."
