Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald has revealed he has been asked to be an investor in a consortium looking to take over at Sunderland.
Donald says he ‘won’t rule it out’ but admits it is unlikely anything would happen and it would take an “absolutely sensational” deal for him to get involved. Sunderland owner Ellis Short is looking to sell the club, with the Black Cats yesterday relegated to the third tier for only the second time in its history.
Short is actively trying to sell the club, with the uncertainty over future ownership having an impact on Chris Coleman’s rebuilding plans. Oxfordshire-based businessman Donald has revealed he has been approached by a consortium to be involved as an investor.
Donald told BBC Radio Solent: “If I’m honest I am not that heavily involved. What has basically happened, it is common knowledge the club is for sale and there are a few consortiums and whenever there are consortiums there is generally a shortage of money somewhere along the line and I always get asked if I’d be an investor.”
