Decision due on bid for Bulls
8:00am Wednesday 8th August 2012 in Sport
The administrator of the Bradford Bulls is expected to announce whether he will accept an offer for the club from Super League Europe by the end of the week.
The Rugby Football League last night said it had yet to hear if administrator Brendan Guilfoyle had approved the proposed takeover but hoped to receive a response tomorrow.
Mr Guilfoyle, who has been running the club since it went into administration on June 26, received an offer from Super League Europe, the umbrella organisation for the 14 top-flight clubs, last Wednesday night.
If accepted, it would stave off the threat of liquidation and ensure Bulls can complete the season – although its future in the top-flight after this season is not secure.
The body stepped in with the “short term” measure amid growing fears that the club was facing collapse after the Rugby Football League twice rejected offers from a consortium led by a group of Bradford businessmen.
Mr Guilfoyle was not available for comment yesterday.
