OxVox have revealed that a group of Oxfordshire businessman have come forward and expressed interest in investing in Oxford United.
The club’s supporters’ trust say they have had contact from Charlie Methven, who is part of the group which also contains ‘a wealthy Oxfordshire family’.
Methven has significant ties to the club, as trustee of their youth and community sports trust, while he has also been working in an advisory role for the U's board and last year played a key role in setting up supporters' group the Yellow Army.
The talks are described as "very recent and very preliminary", concerning their desire to invest in the U's how OxVox would be involved in the future.
It is understood there are two competing groups of investors, with Mark Ashton, a former chief executive of Watford and Wycombe Wanderers, linked to the other consortium.
The club have not made a comment on the uncertainty, with OxVox chairman Mark Sennett telling the Oxford Mail it was time for U's chairman Ian Lenagan to clarify the situation.
