Roma Owner Agrees deal to buy Everton

AS Roma owner Dan Friedkin has agreed a deal with Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri to buy the club.

Sky Sports News reported last week that Friedkin had made an offer to Moshiri and that offer has now been accepted.

Moshiri was tied into a period of exclusivity with troubled US investment group 777 Partners until May 31 and could not enter into alternative discussions.

But Moshiri is now expected to grant exclusivity to Friedkin in the next 48 hours.

Friedkin, who bought Serie A giants Roma in 2020, has an estimated worth of $6.1bn (£4.8bn).
