CHESTER City have called a press conference next Tuesday morning (December 11) to make an announcement regarding the ownership of the club.

The Blues have been subject to speculation in recent months with Spanish-based businessman Richard Downs expressing an interest in buying into the club or purchasing it outright through his sports management company ISM.

Back in October the club announced a similar press conference only to cancel it the day before after chairman Stephen Vaughan made it clear there were some aspects of the proposed deal he was still not happy with.

At the time he said: “I’m taking the stance that I’ve taken from day one. If someone wants to invest in this company, I’m always willing to sit down and do a deal with them if it suits the club. If someone wants to take this club over and they can do a better job than me, I’m always willing to step aside for the benefit of the club.”
