Koukash rejects chance of owning half of Bradford Bulls for 750k

Super League salary cap

Bradford Bulls chairman Andrew Chalmers is looking to sell half of his stake in the club, according to reports from the Press Association tonight.

Chalmers had offered Salford Red Devils supremo Marwan Koukash £750,000 to run the Bulls as part of shared ownership but the former New Zealand Rugby League chairman had his deal rejected.

Koukash, and his wife Mandy, placed a bid for the club in 2014 and also in December 2016 but weren’t the preferred bidders on both occasions.

Press Assocation Sport have also revealed that Mandy Koukash is still interested in buying Bradford but not as part of any joint venture, like what has been offered by Chalmers.
