Al Fayed 'sells Fulham to Khan'

12 July 2013 10:02

Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed has sold the west Londoners to Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan, Press Association Sport understands.

The 84-year-old former Harrods owner has transformed Fulham from a third-tier outfit to an established Barclays Premier League side since taking over in 1997.

Sustained reports this week suggested Al Fayed would now sell the club and Press Association Sport understands the Cottagers will soon confirm a deal has been struck with Khan.

The Pakistan-born businessman has close sporting ties to London, with his NFL franchise playing one regular season game a season at Wembley for the next four years.
