Sunderland: The Fans Together ‘moving closer’ to ownership -Sunderland News

Sky Sports journalist Tom White has now revealed some big news involving Sunderland.

The Lowdown: Change of ownership?

It has been reported that both Stewart Donald and Charlie Methven would consider selling their shares at the Stadium of Light, while The Sunderland Echo have claimed that majority shareholder Kyril Louis-Dreyfus is looking to take full control.

However, other outside bidders have not been ruled out which could take hold of the shares instead.

The Latest: TFT deal

Taking to Twitter, White has revealed that fan ownership group ‘The Fans Together‘ (TFT) are now ‘moving closer’ to a 39% ownership of the Wearside club.

He also shared a statement from a spokesperson of the group to confirm that they are in talks with Donald and Methven to acquire their stake, and explained their reasons for wanting to do so.

Sunderland fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Needed

TFT seem to have good intentions with regards to wanting to buy a stake in Sunderland, and given that Donald and Methven do not seem to be committed to the club anymore, a change of ownership in that regard is needed.

Should Sunderland have hired Neil?

Yes

Yes

No

Finance expert Kieran Maguire has claimed that the pair have left a “toxic legacy” after several years in League One, and the club’s promotion to the Championship could offer a new slate.

This is big news for the Black Cats and their supporters, with further developments likely to emerge over the next few weeks.
