Bolton Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson has told staff he’s a deal in principle to promote the club and the deal could be performed within 48 hours.
Anderson reached precisely the identical point in February having a consortium led by businessman Parminder Basran, but that deal fell through.
Taking a vast majority stake in 2017, he owns 94.5% of their team through his Inner Circle company.
In Januaryhe said he was”doing his extreme” to obtain a buyer amid protests.
Staff were told on Wednesday that the team hoped that the latest bargain would be completed over 48 hours, with the new owner ensuring March wages would be paid to Friday.
A week after, Bolt on affirmed take over talks with the other curious buyer, considered to function as the foot-ball Ventures consortium, had ended.
The next day, the team were given two weeks to settle their debts or risk going into administration after appearing in the High Court within an outstanding £1.2m tax bill.
The situation is supposed to be listed at the High Court on 3 April.
