Sunderland’s takeover could be completed in a ‘matter of days’, according to the latest reports.
According to the Roker Report, Kyril Louis-Dreyfus is now in the process of undergoing the EFL’s ‘owners and directors test’ and it may be a “matter of days” until Stewart Donald’s tenure comes to a screeching halt after two-and-a-half years at the helm.
The report added that a deal between the two parties has been agreed and that the new owners of Sunderland could be in as early as “next week” if proceedings take place as expected.
Donald has come under intense scrutiny by the Stadium of Light faithful ever since the departure of Jack Ross, He deleted his Twitter account which he used to communicate with the supporters, reportedly due to personal threats (via Chronicle Live).
Transfer Tavern Verdict
This update should be seen as amazing news for the Sunderland fans. The finishing line is in sight for something that has been dragging its heels over the past few months.
Donald is a deeply unpopular figure at the club and Louis-Dreyfus’ arrival is eagerly anticipated.
With Sunderland not performing on the pitch, the completion of major events away from it could be the lease of life that the team needs, hopefully injecting some life into them as they look to turn their fortunes around.
