EPL: Crystal Palace complication for Bournemouth sale

Bournemouth’s sale to American billionaire Bill Foley faces some complications.

The veteran billionaire heads a group trying to buy the Cherries but one of his main allies is John Textor.

According to The Sun, Foley’s company are major investors in Eagle Football, the firm run by fellow American football nut Textor, a major shareholder in Crystal Palace.

Textor has bought Brazilian club Botafogo and Belgian team Molenbeek and is about to take charge at Lyon in France this month.

However, there will need to be a deep dive by the Premier League on the links between Foley and Textor as, under their rules, the latter cannot have an interest in two PL clubs.

Foley and his Cannae Holdings company have an agreement with Textor and their aim was to be a partner in buying clubs around the globe.
