Yeovil Town are in "final discussions" with three separate groups that are aiming to buy the Football Club. Last Thursday, on May 30th, the Glovers issued a formal statement indicating they had a 'shortlist' of interested bidders but planned to make a decision on which one to adopt over the next few days, with separate reports that a deadline had been set for the end of the month.
They are still working with three candidate groups, and have now pledged that they will make a decision on which one to adopt as a preferred bidder before the weekend. They plan to issue a further statement on this by 4.00p.m. on Friday. There had been hopes that there would be some sort of a decision or an announcement at some point today, but instead the following holding statment has been issued by the club:
"The club can confirm it is in final discussions with three closely matched groups wishing to buy Yeovil Town Football Club. Negotiations with these parties are at a detailed and delicate stage and a decision on which party to go forward with will be made before the weekend. The club fully appreciates fansí eagerness to see the ownership question concluded and, therefore, a further statement will be issued no later than 4pm on Friday."
