Yet Another Takeover - Wave coming again?(Everton News)

With the news of Everton confiming new major shareholder Farhad Moshiri , we look back at ownership takeovers from over the years.

Everton have officially confirmed that Iranian billionnaire Farhad Moshiri is the new major shareholder, owning 49.9% of the club after paying what's estimated to be around £200million. With this news circling the internet, we reflect on the ownership takeovers over the years and how they have impacted the clubs.


There hasn't been a majotr takeover of the club for some years the lastone involving the top club was July 2013 Fulham takeover by Shahid Khan (but currently Fulham is in Chempinship).

Depanding on the Everton fortunes in the coming months we may see another surge of takeovers as we have seen back in 2005 - 2010 period when over 19 major clubs changed ownership. With new TV deals signed we could see new surge in clubs shares takeovers in 2016 and the first signals are from likes of Crystal Palace (deal with American investors).
