KEN Anderson says he is currently in discussion with four parties about investment at the Macron Stadium.

The Wanderers chairman has been looking for outside help to boost the coffers for new signings able to propel the club towards the top half of the Championship table.

Anderson maintains the sale of his majority shareholding is not up for discussion at present but that he is looking for investors with “deeper pockets” to help the Whites compete financially.

A weekend report claiming Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes was lining up a bidder to buy Wanderers for £25million was denied by the club.

But with Phil Parkinson claiming another eight signings could be necessary to make his squad competitive before the close of the transfer window, and kick-off now four weeks away, time is of the essence.

Anderson also hinted Wanderers could be in line for a cash boost with the naming rights to the stadium now up for grabs. A four-year deal with Italian sportswear firm Macron was signed in 2014, replacing the long-standing deal with Reebok.

“There have been some rumours regarding possible investors, which, again, have been very wide of the mark,” said Anderson in his website notes.

“What I can say is that we are in discussions with four parties who are looking to invest in the club and once we are in a position to make an announcement, we shall do so via the club’s official channels.

“Likewise, we are very close to finalising naming rights on the stadium and we shall confirm this once everything has been agreed.”

On the transfer front, Anderson believes progress will now be made as players return for pre-season around the country.

Wanderers have brought French winger Moussa Sao in for a trial at their Scottish training base this week and could add another name before Saturday’s lunchtime friendly against St Mirren.

“We are in discussions with several more players and I expect us to make some solid progress in the coming days,” Anderson said.
