Very unlikely that a takeover is anywhere near possible. For a start, no one has initiated the due-diligence process that would herald an active interest.

Far more likely is that Xia is looking for ways to raise money but without losing control of AVFC.

All the available evidence indicates that Xia is looking for partners and/ or the chance to sell shares.

That is being widely reported.

What isn't being reported openly is that Xia absolutely wants to retain control at any cost. Don't forget that there a loss of face issue at stake, one that will be hugely important for Xia.

Grealish is the obvious short-term fix. And the fee will be in between the 15 million suggested and the 40 million allegedly wanted by the club.

Assume a fee of 20-25 million - payable over 2 to 5 years - and we won't be too far wrong.

What worries me with this Dr going for investment in the club.
He seems to want Chinese investors,
We can't get money out of China as it is now,
I only wish we had British owners who we can relate to more easily,
But we wait and wait and wait for something to happen to put a smile on us suffering fans,

I can't understand how somebody, whether its the owner, chairman, club in general can be so reckless - Was nobody asking honest questions about how the club would survive if we didn't gain promotion? How has the club ended up in this position? Total mismanagement from top to bottom but unfortunately it looks like we are stuck under this regime for at least another season, I just hope we can maintain our Championship status until then.

A takeover will happen.

I don't see one happening, certainly not in time to make any real impact on next season - I can only imagine how the squad will look at that point once the vultures have swooped and Bruce has replaced them with over the hill ("experienced") players instead of giving youth a chance.
