The Football League has issued the following statement in response to comments earlier today by John Ryan regarding the proposed takeover of Doncaster Rovers.

A Football League spokesman said: “In any club takeover it is a requirement for the prospective purchaser to provide a business plan and to demonstrate that the funding is in place to deliver on that plan.

“This is part of the League’s ongoing efforts to ensure the financial sustainability of our clubs.

“In this case, this fundamental requirement has not yet been met.

“We are in close contact with the club and will continue our dialogue.”
