In an interview with the Everton Fan Advisory Board, recorded before Saturday’s defeat at West Ham United, Farhad Moshiri said he is only seeking to bring in extra financing in order to help fund the new stadium and not selling the club.
“The club is not for sale, but I’ve been talking to top investors of real quality to bridge a gap on the stadium. I can do it myself. But I want to bring top sport investors into Everton. We are close to having a deal done.
It is not selling the club at all, it is just bringing more expertise in terms of global sponsorship, commercial development. A lot of specialist sport investors have this pool of knowledge and it is to secure that for Everton.”
