Ambitious Salford Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash has revealed he wants to buy Oldham Athletic.
The millionaire racehorse owner shook the rugby league world last week by making a raft of high-profile signings including former Man of Steel Rangi Chase, and he has now set his sights on expanding his sporting portfolio.
Koukash has targeted Latics and the town's rugby league team, insisting he would build a new multi-purpose stadium for the pair.
– Koukash speaking to Press Association Sport.
I had discussions with Simon (Corney, Oldham Athletic chairman) three months ago.
Simon knows that I'm very interested in the club. At the end of the day for it to happen you need a willing seller and a willing buyer. For me, I would be interested in going ahead if the deal is right for the club.
It's very much at the preliminary stages. Of course I'm interested, there's no point in hiding it.
