Wigan Warriors chairman Ian Lenagan has confirmed he will not be selling the club.
Reports had suggested that Lenagan’s long reign at the helm of Wigan could be coming to an end, with billionaire Mike Danson lined up to replace him.
However, Lenagan confirmed the rumours were false in a statement on the club’s official website.
The statement reads: “This report is false. I am surprised that the editor of League Express, who has my personal mobile number and has phoned me many times previously for comments, did not check with me the accuracy of it before publishing.
“It is well known that Mike Danson and Darryl Eales are shareholders in Lenagan Investments, the company which controls ownership of Wigan.
“This is a very strong position for Wigan Rugby League Club Ltd and its supporters. There are no current plans for the Lenagan family to relinquish control of Lenagan Investments and, hence, Wigan Warriors.”
