WANDERERS’ search for new ownership is close to a conclusion, the club has announced.

A statement released this morning confirmed that an agreement in principle has been reached for Ken Anderson to sell his 94.5 per cent stake in the club’s parent company, Burnden Leisure.

The Bolton News understands that the Future Ventures consortium headed by Parminder Basran and Sharron Brittan has now entered into a period of exclusivity and could complete the deal by the end of this week.

The statement read: “The Chairman is pleased to announce that an agreement in principle has been reached that will result in Inner Circle Investments selling its total shareholding in Burnden Leisure.

A period of due diligence has now begun, once this process has been completed and the requirements of the EFL have been satisfied a further announcement will be made to supporters.”

Theyre wealthy compared to me and you. But compared to other club owners they're paupers.

You don’t know what I’m worth.

Also, I doubt they’d agree to pay all these debts and other ridiculous prices for KA if they didn’t have any clout

I know nothing about them but I hope they have real money rather than another stop-gap group who will sell us on in two years. I'm talking about billions not millions.....we shall see.

If they had real money they wouldn't be buying a tin pot club like this would they.

Dan Roan: I understand the consortium close to buying Bolton Wanderers is being led by businessman Parminder Basran, founder of investment firm VGC Partners, alongside businesswoman Sharon Brittan & entrepreneur Jeff Thomas

According to Google he is an American footballer, but they also say Ken Anderson is a wrestler so wouldn't believe everything they say.

[size=31]Jeff Thomas, 58, chairman[/size]

My background was in town planning but in my twenties I had worked as a sound engineer with live bands around the UK and Europe and in technology with a firm in California. After working for a couple of public companies, I started a business called Endata, which was acquired in 1994 by a US firm, Peak Technologies.
Peak had listed on Nasdaq and I stayed and helped to grow the business through 14 acquisitions in seven countries over three years to a market cap of more than $250m. After it was sold in 1997, I came back to Britain, settled in Bath and invested in dotcom start-ups. Finding many lacked the infrastructure needed to scale rapidly, I acquired Hartham Park, a 100,000-sq ft stately home near Corsham, Wiltshire, as a platform for the incubation and acceleration of technology firms. Forty-three companies are now based there.
We also took a lease on former Ministry of Defence land and formed the Corsham Media Park in a joint venture. When most of the media companies we attracted retrenched after the dotcom bubble burst, I had to think what we could do with the site. In 2005 we came up with the world’s first modular data centre, today known as Ark Data Centres.
We acquired another site in Farnborough and after the 2010 election, in the face of austerity, I came up with a disruptive model of selling cloud-computing by the hour to the UK Government. That led to the creation of Skyscape and our partnerships with major technology groups.
