Keith working all of the hours possible to make sure this deal is completed

Keith Ryder has reassured supporters that he remains committed to buying Port Vale Football Club, despite administrators Begbies-Traynor stating that they are now talking to other interested parties.

Said Keith: “We have been unable to complete as quickly as we would have liked, but this does not mean that I have cold feet regarding the deal, or that I am unable to complete.

“Deals of this magnitude will inevitably hit snags along the way and I am extremely frustrated that I have been unable to complete the deal.

“We have complied with all of the Football League regulations and I have given proof of funding to Begbies-Traynor. We are now at the final hurdle and I wake up every morning believing this is the day we will complete the takeover.

“I have shown my intent to take Port Vale forward, both by part-funding the wages and the pre-season trip to Ireland. In addition to this, I have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that things are in place for when the takeover is completed.

“If the deal does not go through, and someone else buys the club, there will be no-one more disappointed than me. I am working all of the hours possible to make sure this deal is completed.”
