A consortium thought to be fronted by former Gunner, Tony Adams, still haven’t given up on buying Sunderland, despite some of their main members ending their interest.

Adams is thought to be one of the candidates in line for the Sunderland manager’s job, although former Newcastle boss, Alan Pardew, is the favourite.

A consortium, fronted by Adams, is eager to take over the newly relegated Black Cats, despite Gabe Turner, Leo Pearlman and Ben Turner of the London-based TV production company, Fulwell73, no longer being interested.

According to an EXCLUSIVE in the Daily Star, the remaining members are still keen to go ahead with the plan, and are currently being advised by former Chelsea executive Paul Smith, as well as Adams.

Apparently, Sunderland’s owner, Ellis Short, is asking for £80m to buy the club.

They’ll allegedly be meeting with Dr Keith Harris, a football consultant who helped oversee the previous sales of Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Fulham, West Ham and Everton, by the end of the week.
