Acun Ilicali’s takeover of Hull City is close but isn’t completed just yet.
Hull Daily Mail reporter Barry Cooper has said the process is in the ‘closing stages’ (see tweet below).
Nothing much I can say at this stage, Jamie. Final bits are with the lawyers. Just a case of waiting for it all to be completed. We’re into the closing stages. Panic not. #hcafc

The final details of the deal are being ironed as the Tigers’ fans patiently wait for their new owner to arrive.
Grant McCann’s side have been in great form on the pitch over recent weeks and have won their last four games in the league.
