Hull City’s vice-chairman Ehab Allam says he is working hard to get the takeover deal over the line.
Hull City are in the process of being taken over by Turkish businessman Acun Ilicali.
The deal was hoped to be struck before Christmas as the new ownership look ahead to the January transfer window.
It is taking a little longer than expected but is appears that the appetite is there from both parties to get it completed as soon as possible.
Allam has said, as per a report by the Yorkshire Post:
“We’re still fairly confident of progressing the deal to a conclusion. We’ve reached the holiday period now so there’s a slight delay in that process.
“I am not on holiday at this time but other people are unfortunately. I’m still working hard to get the deal done.”
