Notts County reveal ownership details
Tuesday 29 September 2009
Members of the independent trust that owns the League Two club were named yesterday.
The Football League confirmed earlier this week that they were looking into the purchase of the club and County revealed further details of Middle East-based families who are part of the group at the weekend.
Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Dr Moeen Qureshi, was linked to the club by the BBC, however he has denied being involved in the takeover and is not a member of the trust. Shaki Ullah Durrani, a governor of the State Bank and former governor of Islamabad, has been named as a member.
On the field, meanwhile, the Magpies have moved to sign free agent striker Ade Akinbiyi to boost their attack. The 34-year-old joins until the end of the season. "Akinbiyi is the latest signing in what has been a busy summer on the transfer market for Notts County," said a statement on the club's website.
