League Championship Club Doncaster Rovers Rejects Takeover Proposal

League Championship club Doncaster Rovers "will remain in the hands of its current owners after the club rejected a proposed takeover by Sequentia Capital," according to SKY SPORTS. The Irish-led consortium "expressed an interest in Rovers over the summer and revealed plans to spend" upwards of £20M ($32M) on a five-year plan to get the south Yorkshire club into the Premier League. Talks "had stalled in recent weeks and on Monday morning Doncaster issued a statement on its official website distancing themselves from any takeover." Doncaster's statement "is the latest twist in a summer-long saga regarding the future of the club under current major shareholders John Ryan, Terry Bramall and Dick Watson" (SKY SPORTS, 9/30).
