League One Coventry City Administrator Paul Appleton Announces Four Bids For The Outfit
League One side Coventry City administrator Paul Appleton "has announced that four bids have been made" for the club, according to Gregg Scott of the BBC. Following Thursday's 12pm BST deadline for final and best offers for Coventry City FC Ltd. Appleton said, "I can confirm I have received four bids. I will obviously now take time to consider these bids before contacting the bidders with my final decision on a preferred purchaser. As part of this process, there will be discussions with Football League." The only known bids "are from a consortium, headed by U.S. tycoon Preston Haskell IV and another involving the club's current owners, Sisu" (BBC, 6/13).
