The acquisition of Salford City Football Club, partly-owned by former Manchester United stars Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, has been formally approved by the Football Association and the Northern Premier League.

Back in March the ex-Red Devils quintet agreed to take over the Evo-Stik Division One North club and in September Singaporean businessman Peter Lim - owner of Valencia - took a 50% share in the venture.

The final paperwork on their deal has now been completed after approval from the governing body and league. The management of the club on a day-to-day basis, as announced back in March, will remain the same.
