Ken Anderson Provides Bolton Investment Update

Ken Anderson has confirmed Bolton remain in talks over potential investment, although discussions with interested parties have thus far failed to reach fruition.

With little over a fortnight to go until the start of the new Championship season, Wanderers remain in desperate search of new recruits and recently saw first-team players go on strike after a number of wages and bonuses for the month of June went unpaid.

In his latest column, posted at, the Trotters chairman insisted negotiations are ongoing but he will only entertain offers from those willing to provide proof of a successful long-term future for the club.

"I want to make it clear that we have never proactively approached any party or sought to sell the club," he said.

"However, not surprisingly we are regularly being approached by third parties interested in investing or buying the club. As I have previously stated, I will of course only entertain any serious bids that will ensure the long-term future and stability of the club.

"Recently, we had long and detailed discussions with a Middle East-based group who showed a keen interest in the club. However, they ultimately decided to buy a club in the Middle East.

"Another locally based person, who had previously made an offer, once again showed a keen interest. However, when he supplied us his proof of funds, the documentation used was found to be fake and no further discussions will take place with this particular person or his professional advisors.

"An Asian-based consortium have also failed to provide proof of funds and discussions have consequently been terminated.

"Discussions are still continuing with another party and I will of course keep you updated."
