In recent days, contrasting reports have pitched BBC Berkshire's 'long-way-off' headline against the GetReading 'any-day-now' mantra. Today GetReading have reported the signing and purchasing of Reading FC, to the Thai Consortium we've known about for some time.
The full story is here.
We've also seen Sky Sports News report the signing of the necessary documents, through reporter Amy Lewis.
Sources telling me that Samrit Bunditkitsada's takeover at Reading FC has been finalised with the sale and purchase order being signed.— Amy Lewis (@SkySportsAmy) July 17, 2014
So what now? Why no club confirmation? It seems that the Football League Owners & Directors Test is now the focus of attention, which means no official club announcement is expected, yet, as myself and Charles Watts have tweeted.
Given that the takeover isnt actually done yet, I'd be surprised to see an official club announcement before Monday- a mildly educated guess— Marc Mayo (@ThatMarcMayo) July 17, 2014
Don't be expecting any comment from #ReadingFC any time today.— Charles Watts (@charles_watts) July 17, 2014
Keep your eye on The Tilehurst End for the latest on all things Reading FC.
