Allardyce: Takeover to be completed soon

19 November 2010 11:30
Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce expects Indian company Venky's to complete their takeover of the club in the very near future. The poultry giant are in final negotiations with the Rovers hierarchy over a £46million deal to buy the Ewood Park outfit. The proposed takeover may have faded from the media agenda since it was first announced last month but Allardyce says it is still very much alive. Allardyce said: "It is not as quiet as everyone thinks it is because it is very close to be being clinched. "I spoke to the chairman this morning (Friday) and the club expects to make an announcement very shortly."
