Koukash casts eye over Salford
Wednesday 16 January 2013
Racing magnate Dr Marwan Koukash will get his first sight of Salford City Reds tomorrow night as he seeks to complete a takeover of the cash-strapped Super League club.
The 56-year-old Kuwait-born businessman and racehorse owner is still in negotiations with Salford City Stadium owners Peel Holdings and Salford Council to buy both the club and the ground.
It is thought a deal is close and Dr Koukash has flown in Andrew Chalmers, Ed Farish and former Wigan coach Graham Lowe from Australia and New Zealand to help him transform their fortunes.
Koukash, who lives in St Helens, has booked a hospitality box to see tonight's friendly against Wigan.
