As requested by some, here is a new thread on this topic rather than be subsumed within the Sarr thread. In the run up to player sales (and maybe purchases) and release of the accounts for last season around December time the finances of the club will dictate how we act. Here is a headline from todays FT on 23Capital-the provider (since April 2016) of now £70m in loans to the parent company who have on lent it to the club and taken a charge over the ground and players contracts as security. Also there is a link to a summary of the article as the FT article is behind a paywall. https://finanz.dk/soros-backed-football-finance-lender-23-capital-winds-down/ https://www.ft.com/content/1137c704-929c-40f1-a5ca-3cd453fe22f7 Basically says its being wound down and restructuring its loans to clubs.George Soros-the billionaire behind the lender is winding down its loan book and has cut staff as the impact of Covid on its business-it lends to football clubs and the entertainment business-takes its toll. It does say that one of the partners is to create a new entity lending to European football clubs. However it will be to the "top leagues and clubs" IMHO it is unlikely to involve lending to a club like ours in the championship. 23 Capital has already outsourced the administration of the loan book to a corporate services provider which is often seen as no new lending and please can we have our money back asap.
