Heart defuse sale speculation

Melbourne Heart have released a statement addressing recent speculation linking the Club with a sale.

Melbourne Heart have released the following statement addressing recent speculation linking the Club with a sale.

"Melbourne Heart has been approached by a number of parties over the past 12 months.

The Club has always maintained that the owners would consider transferring ownership if they considered the sale to be in the best long-term interests of the Club, which includes players, staff and members.

Over the last four months, the Club-s ownership has held discussions with one particular group who has expressed an interest in growing the Club, which has always been the current Board-s vision.

The Club confirms, however, there has been no sale and that any discussions are ongoing.

Any discussions will ensure the Club-s existing structures remain, in order to prevent dislocation to the Club's philosophies or personnel.

Until such discussions are concluded, the Club will make no further comment."
