Lenders under the microscope

Vibrac are under the microscope - Stanley Chou

Vibrac, the offshore lending company who have taken control of the Reading Football Club takeover saga, are under the microscope from the Football League, who are unhappy with their sudden power; this, whilst Phoenix make a £5m + debt offer.

GetReading's Charles Watts has this morning reported that the Football League are unhappy with the sudden power afforded to Vibrac, the offshore lending company who are in control of the club's takeover negotiations.

Phoenix, the American-based hedge fund company, have made an offer of £5m plus the eradication of any debt the Royals owe for the ownership of the club. Former board member, Chris Samuelson, is said to be heavily involved in the Phoenix bid — which may go some way to explaining why he was removed from the board.

However, Vibrac, who are based in the Virgin Islands, are under the microscope from the Football League as they feel it's unsuitable for them to have so much power without passing the fit-and-proper persons test; though as Royals fans, we know just how nonsensical that test really is.
