Hull City have confirmed that the club have entered a ‘period of exclusivity’ with a potential buyer of the club.
It had been reported in Turkey last week that businessman Acun Ilicali was poised to buy the Championship strugglers in a deal that could be worth £30m.
Whilst that appears to be a tad premature, it appears something is in the pipeline, as the club responded to the speculation by revealing that they are in talks with a potential buyer in what was a very brief statement, although they didn’t name Ilicali.
This would be a normal process for a takeover to happen, and fans will now be hoping that a further announcement will follow in the coming weeks announcing a deal is complete.
The current owners, the Allam family, are not popular at all with the fans after a lot of issues during their reign over the years. So, this news went down well with the support and here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
What a day 🇹🇷 https://t.co/VZwUcrxl56

Please let everything go well. Cannot stand this club being ripped apart anymore. It needs urgent C.P.R. https://t.co/E3pBlve3iN

Very positive but DD can take many weeks. A full level two report includes full reputational profiling. You have to get investigators to look into the subject’s private life, business dealings, interviews with ex-partners etc – it can get very messy. All fingers crossed. #hcafc https://t.co/LaBB1hbJ8p

The Allams have been selling the club for so long that I'll believe it when I see the new owner on the pitch.
