King makes ‘sticky’ claim as 777 takeover update emerges



Everton are still in a “sticky” situation involving their impending takeover by 777 Partners, according to former Goodison Park scout Bryan King.


The US investment firm are yet to complete its takeover of the Merseyside club, having agreed to a deal with Farhad Moshiri last year.


According to i news (5 March), 777 received verbal confirmation from the Premier League for a face-to-face meeting to discuss the takeover last week.


Speaking to Goodison News, King said: “Why would they get a verbal confirmation if they aren’t still interested?


“But I’m still worried about the actual financing of this loan, and of them taking over Everton. I know Moshiri wants to get out, probably get his money back.


“It’s still a sticky one this. Until everything is done in writing, hold your breath and watch this space I think. Their record in Europe is not that glowing.”
