Report: Hull City takeover talks have commenced

Hull City KC Stadium

Assem Allam has entered talks over a potential sale of Hull City, according to reports from the BBC.

Allam was subject to fierce criticism from the fans for his plans to change Hull City AFC's 110-year old title to Hull Tigers a couple of years ago.

Despite the vehement protests from the supporters, Allam went ahead with his decision and had submitted a proposal to the Football Association back in 2014.

The request was rejected by the FA though and almost immediately, the frustrated Allam decided to put Hull City up for sale.

Allam has not yet sold the club as he wants to hand over the reins to the ‘right’ buyer but now according to reports from the BBC, it can be revealed that the 76-year old has finally commenced negotiations over the sale of Hull.

The identity of the interested party has not been disclosed as of yet but the talks which were held over the weekend have been labeled as ‘constructive’.

Hull City are currently fighting for a place in the Premier League and recently claimed a fine 3-0 victory over Derby County in the first leg of the Championship Playoff semi finals.
