Wolves reject takeover bid from Souness

Wolves have rejected a takeover bid from the consortium headed by Graeme Souness. The Championship club have revealed the £20million offer is 'significantly below proposals already put forward by other parties', and have appointed a leading City investment bank to advise on the other offers.

Rothschild advised on the recent takeovers of Manchester United and Aston Villa and provided expert financial advice to Arsenal, Liverpool and the Premier League.

The club's owner, Sir Jack Hayward, has offered to hand over controlling interest at Molineux in exchange for significant investment in Wolves. He initially asked for £40million to be pumped into the club, but halved that in November - apparently sparking the current interest.

Souness went public on his bid last week and claimed his consortium involved a 'British businessman with British-based interests'.

After Wolves initially denied they were in negotiations with the former Rangers, Liverpool, Blackburn and Newcastle manager, the Scot submitted a written bid and signed a confidentiality agreement.

But Wolves today revealed interest from other parties had led them to reject Souness' offer.

Chief executive Jez Moxey said: 'There has been quite a lot of interest in the opportunity to acquire control of Wolves and confidential discussions have taken place with a number of potential investors. Last week another party, which included Graeme Souness, tabled a written proposal.

'After giving careful consideration to this offer, Sir Jack and the board have unanimously decided to reject it formally on the basis that they do not believe it fully values the club and the opportunity at Molineux, and that the offer is also significantly below proposals already put forward by other parties.

'In view of the interest shown by potential investors, and the discussions we have had with them to date, the board has decided to appoint Rothschild to act as the club's advisors.'
