Rescue package for Luton Town given thumbs up

January 15, 2008

Luton administrator Brendan Guilfoyle has announced that a deal has been agreed with the Nick Owen-fronted consortium to buy the troubled League One club.

The troubled Hatters, who face Liverpool an FA Cup third-round replay at Anfield tonight, are hoping to tie up a deal with group led by the former breakfast television presenter.

'We are now in a position to assess the sale of the football club, subject to approval, to the Luton Town FC consortium which includes Nick Owen,' he told Sky Sports News.

'I'm certainly hoping this brings an end to the trouble at the club.'
