Arsenal Supporters' Trust meets with Daniel Ek about takeover plans

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust has met with Daniel Ek over his plans to buy control of the club from Stan Kroenke.

Ek's attempted takeover has earned the support of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp, with Henry saying yesterday that the three Invincibles want to restore the “Arsenal DNA" to the club as part of the Swede's bid.

“We were encouraged to hear their commitment to making the role of fans central to their proposals," AST said in a statement. “This is very welcome and we look forward to further dialogue.

“We will engage with anyone who has a serious proposal as it is important any current or future owner is aware of the importance of working with fans. We also continue to seek a constructive and meaningful dialogue with Stan and Josh Kroenke.

“Our message to all of them is simple: Football needs to change. Arsenal needs to change."
