Possible Salford saviour in talks

Millionaire racehorse owner Marwan Koukash has been unveiled as the mystery businessman locked in talks aimed at saving Salford.

Dr Koukash, who has made the bulk of his fortune from worldwide property development, attended a meeting with development company Peel Holdings and Salford Council, the joint landlords of the Salford City Stadium who are both keen to keep the ailing Super League club afloat. Salford earlier staved off the threat of liquidation at a court hearing in Manchester.
