The takeover of the Salford City Reds should be completed by Monday - or at least, so says the man buying them.
Dr Marwan Koukash, the racehorse owner based in St Helens, was in town to watch Salford's friendly match against Wigan last night.
The club is believed to be 600 thousand pounds in debt and face a winding up order in just over a fortnight.
But Koukash claims a deal will be completed in a matter of hours. He gave his first TV interview to David Chisnall.
