Ellis In West Bromwich Takeover?

Ellis In West Bromwich Takeover?

Ellis live on!

I have it on good authority that Doug Ellis is the head of a consortium that is in negotiations with West Bromwich Albion Chairman, Jeremy Peace, regarding a potential takeover at the club.

This story is yet to be made public and I do not have any information on the Albions official stance on this. It is though an issue that has been developing for a while. I would personally doubt most stories of this nature but my source is very strong.

Those who remember back to January may recall me indicating, prior to Ashley Young's arrival that Villa had agreed an £8 million fee for a London based player. The speculation then was as to whether this may have been Wright Phillips, Defoe or Darren Bent. I argued that Watford would be considered London based and that Young was the player in question.

My contact is the same one for both stories and up to now he has a 100% hit rate. Watch this space.

lol steff. As for being Chairman bearvill I think you are probably correct on that. My understanding is that he is part of the consortium and that his involvement probably has something to do with the fact that he has £22 million burning a hole in his pocket. Wonder were that came from??? My blood still boils at the thought of the egotistical maniac that single handedly took the club from being the best in Europe, to one that was just grateful to stay in the top flight.
