Wigan to be bought by Phoenix 2021 Ltd subject to EFL approval

(Reuters) - Wigan Athletic are set to be bought by UK-based Phoenix 2021 Limited, eight months after it was forced into administration, the third tier League One club said on Monday.

The club said Phoenix 2021, a consortium led by Bahrain businessman Abdulrahman Al-Jasmi, would be the new owners subject to approval by the EFL Board which is expected to be formally completed by March 31."To Latics fans everywhere, we can only guess at the amount of hurt and distress you have felt since the club entered administration," incoming chairman Talal Al-Hammad said in a statement.

"It is now our focus to stabilise its future and to illustrate why we believe we are the best ownership group for the club. We know that we will have to earn your trust through actions rather than words."A Spanish investor was interested in purchasing the club last year but that move fell through earlier this year.
