Alan Hardy

The sale of Notts County is being held up by an issue “out of the control” of the Club, according to owner Alan Hardy.

In a statement to supporters, Alan Hardy says he understand the frustration that fans are feeling over the stalled sale of the Magpies.

He said: “Due to increasing and understandable levels of frustration within the fanbase I would like to provide assurances that talks with prospective buyers are continuing in a constructive manner.

“An issue out of the club’s control is currently delaying matters but I am extremely confident it will be resolved so we can reach a positive outcome.

“Everyone involved is acutely aware that time is of the essence and we are working around the clock to get a deal done at the earliest opportunity.

“I’m sorry that I can’t reveal more but, as is normal practice, non-disclosure agreements have been signed, limiting what I can tell you at this stage.

“Thank you for your continued support and patience.”
