The Sun are reporting that a consortium led by businessman Matt Southall and former Blackburn Rovers Head of Operations Paul Senior are interested in buying the club from Tony Xia.

Our defeat in the Playoff Final to Fulham has reportedly prompted our owner to “cut his losses” and sell up.

However, supporters on Twitter were highly sceptical about the story. Here is some of the reaction:

Verdict:

It is not advisable to trust any report from the Sun. I’m with most fans who will take this story by David Coverdale with a large pinch of salt.

Until a more reliable source corroborates it, I don’t think it’s worth getting too worked up about. Of course, there is a possibility that Tony Xia may look to cash in after failing to get this club back into the big time.

However, his recent statement about plans for the future doesn’t suggest that he intends to sell. That may change, but we’ll have to see.
