According to reports today, Sulaiman Al Fahim is still yet to complete his takeover of Portsmouth Football Club – despite being announced as owner only recently.
The required documents linked to his purchase are yet to be made available to the Premier League.
To add further to the speculation, league officials are refusing to comment on the situation in hand.
Al Fahim has already successfully passed the new and revised fit-and-proper-owner test but has yet to sign off all financial elements.
Despite the deal not being completed, there is no doubt in saying the UAE businessman is definitely Pompey owner.
Under newly revised Premier League rules, it is a requirement to reveal the identity of those who withhold a 10%+ stake in the club.
In this scenario, the 32-year-old has officially been declared, putting an end to any uncertainty.
It is now up for debate when Pompey’s takeover will finally be completed.
In my opinion, this is more likely to happen when Al Fahim finds interested parties to invest.
