Following the news relating to Bolton Wanderers, the EFL has released the following statement:
An EFL Spokesman said:
“We are aware of the terms of an Order granted earlier today in the High Court in Manchester in respect of Bolton Wanderers.
“The League is not a party to the proceedings and we are currently liaising with the Administrators of the Club to understand the full extent of any implications to the proposed transfer of assets.
“We are extremely frustrated by this late development with the deal so close to completion, and our focus must remain firmly on ensuring the long-term future of the football club.
“We will be making no further comment at this time.”
