Sunderland: William Storey posts images outside Stadium of Light amid takeover speculation

Sunderland: William Storey posts images outside Stadium of Light amid takeover speculation - Sunderland News

Potential new Sunderland owner William Storey has added to speculation by posting an image of himself wearing the club’s home shirt outside the Stadium of Light.

After failing to gain promotion from League One to the Championship last season, pressure is firmly mounting on the shoulders of current Black Cats owner Stewart Donald.

Donald, who took over the Wearsiders back in 2018revealed just 19 months into his tenure that he wanted to leave the club and sell up, prompting a whole host of names to show interest in succeeding him at the helm.

Chinese businessman Sammy YuMark Campbell and former Wearside club defender Michael Gray have all been linked with interest, but Storey’s name has been consistently mentioned of late.

Despite claims made by Sunderland Echo that Donald has entered an ‘exclusive‘ stage with a potential buyer, the Rich Energy owner has added to speculation by posting a number of images on his official Twitter, including some of him in a retro Black Cats shirt.

The current asking price set by Donald for a potential new owner is at £37.6m, which Storey can seemingly afford given that his company already actively sponsors a number of sports players, clubs and organisations.

You have to take your hat off to Storey for this publicity stunt. Not only does it show fans of Sunderland that he is keen, but it also suggests that he is willing to go the extra mile for the club.

Whether Storey who is the man entered into an ‘exclusive’ stage with Stewart Donald remains to be seen, but why would he be in Sunderland otherwise?

Do you think Storey could be the man to replace Donald as Sunderland owner? Let us know your views in the comments section below…
