Blackburn expect visits from would-be buyers this week

Blackburn Rovers expect to entertain potential buyers this week.

The Lancashire Telegraph says Rovers are awaiting a visit from their prospective buyers as the takeover process looks set to gather pace this week.

Indian tycoon Ahsan Ali Syed is understood to have almost completed his own due diligence on the club's finances and the next stage would involve talks between the parties at Ewood Park.

Ali signed a Memorandum of Understanding a month ago, which gave him a month's period of exclusivity, but the expiry of that date yesterday is understood to not be highly significant.

Since the high profile Ewood visit of his team of negotiators to start the due diligence process, Rovers and Ali's camps have not met again but will do for the process to progress.

Rival bidder Mumbai-businessman Saurin Shah is understood to be ready to enter into his own period of due diligence on the club but will wait another week before starting the process.
