Americans won't give up on Forest

Share/Save

The US-based consortium interested in buying Nottingham Forest have said that they are going to persist with their efforts to acquire the club despite another setback.

They made a renewed effort to buy the club this week after they revealed they had lent the club funds to cover wages in November and December.  John Jay Moores and Charles Noell made an improved offer to buy 100 per cent of Forest from owner Fawaz-al-Hasawi.   However, the offer was rejected by the Kuwaiti businessman who took over in 2012.

The owner has renewed his dedication and commitment to the club in an open letter to fans in which he says that he cannot say anything about rumours over takeover talks for reasons of confidentiality.  If I was a Forest fan, I do not think I would be reassured.
