Bolton Wanderers have been handed a court date of March 20, where a winding-up petition issued by HM Revenue & Customs will be heard.

The petition, which was filed against the club on February 4, relates to unpaid PAYE and VAT invoices, and is the sixth of its sort in just 16 months.

Wanderers chairman Ken Anderson has remained quiet on speculation regarding a potential takeover in recent weeks, but provided an update on Wednesday in which he appeared to indicate a consortium consisting of Parminder Basran, Sharron Brittan and former Brentford and Nottingham Forest manager Mark Warburton remain favourites to strike a deal.

Posting to bwfc.co.uk, Anderson said: "l will never disclose the identity of any of the prospective buyers as Non Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) usually prevent this and rightly so.

"As far as l am aware, the comments about a Turkish buyer are pure fiction and to the best of my knowledge are yet more speculation that seems to have been generated by the media.

"There have also been various other postings about a North West consortium backed by Russian money. Again, this is pure fiction.

"Unfortunately, a number of people like to portray that they know more than they actually do and speculate on what's happening and generally speaking, it bears no relation to the truth and reality of what is really happening.

"The facts are that there is a consortium with which heads of terms were agreed and discussions are ongoing.

"There has, over the last week or so, been further interest from several other consortiums who have all signed NDAs and discussions are also ongoing with them.

"Everything else that has been said or written can be ignored as it is total fiction."
