(Bristol Rovers FC have issued the following statement in response to media coverage today.)
Following reports in the local media this morning regarding the possibility of a future take-over of the club, we would like to clarify our position.
The board of directors have made no secret of their intention to secure investment in a bid to take the club forward and cement its long-term future.
Additionally if a potential buyer were to approach us with the right offer, made for the right reasons, we would obviously consider this offer.
At this moment in time there has been no offer. However, this situation may change in the future.
We have a very clear, ambitious plan to move this club forward and are actively looking for new directors with expertise.
That plan is dependent on new or increased investment.
We have spoken to Chris Samuelson. It was an informal conversation. Chris and the people he represents are looking at a number of clubs.
We can see why Bristol Rovers is one of the clubs they were interested in talking to. We have an incredible fan base which is the envy of many clubs.
This makes us an attractive proposition for potential investors.
But at this moment in time there is no agreement in place to sell Bristol Rovers.
