High Court rule McCabe must sell up at Sheffield Utd

The High Court have ruled Kevin McCabe must sell his £5million worth of shares in Sheffield United to Prince Abdullah.

It means McCabe's association with his boyhood club is over and it also ends a bitter feud between the two co-owners that began in 2017.

The Sun says both men took 50-50 ownership in 2013 when the club were in League One.

McCabe sold a 50 per cent stake of the Yorkshire side for just £1 on the basis that the Saudi prince would provide significant investment in the squad in a bid to get them back to the promised land.

But their partnership reached boiling point two years ago when both men launched bids to gain full control of the club.

An agreement couldn't be reached and it has led to a two-year court battle which eventually reached its conclusion today.
