Bradford Bulls administrator has again raised the expectation of Bulls supporters by announcing that yet another potential bid has been received to take over at Odsal.
After Superleague Europe stepped into the ring and made an offer late last week, it is understood that another offer was received on Wednesday of this week by administrator Brendan Guilfoyle and put forward to the RFL for consideration. Whilst no names have been attached to the new offer, it is widely rumoured to be from Bradford City football club, and backed up by in the region of £3 million of funding.
The RFL have now set a new deadline for the receipt of unconditional offers for the Bulls, and the original interest shown by ABC consortium is now understood to have been withdrawn.
It appears that from a position of being on the verge of going out of business just a week ago, the Administrator is now in the enviable position of determining which of two viable bids will be allowed to progress in the interest of the clubs creditors.
The Bulls players, coaching staff and supporters must be breathing a huge sigh of relief and keeping everything crossed for RFL approval, while having slight trepidation about what any potential tie-up with the football club might bring.
