Possible future Doncaster Rovers owners Sequentia Capital have promised to spend upwards of £20m to help the club achieve their Premier League dream if their proposed takeover goes through. // '); tileNumber++; // ]]> // "); // ]]>
The Irish-based consortium, backed by a tycoon based in the Central American tax haven of Belize, saw their bid to take over the Championship outfit stall last month, but Sequentia spokesperson Kevin Phelan says the deal remains on the table.
However, he warned that the clock is ticking and that they ‘cannot keep holding out’.
Rovers chairman John Ryan has publicly supported the bid from Sequentia, but the club’s other major shareholders Terry Bramall and Dick Watson remain undecided on the future direction of the club.
As well as revealing they are willing to pump £20m-plus into squad recruitment, Sequentia have announced ambitious plans to increase the capacity at the Keepmoat Stadium to 21,000 if the club makes it to the Premier League.
The potential building of a hotel and leisure facilities at the site and developing a sporting ‘hub’, creating a number of new jobs in the process, also forms part of their ambitious and wide-ranging plans.
