The end is nigh

Stoke City are in negotiations with two separate parties who are interested in taking over the Stafforshire club, Icelandic newspaper Fréttablaðið reveals today.

The Icelandic consortium bought the Championship club seven years ago for £3.7m but have decided that they have reached the end of the road.

“For us Icelanders, the end is near. We’ve grown a bit tired after seven seasons. This is not a bad time to call it quits, we’ve managed to make the club stronger and we’re satisfied with that. I think it’s important for others to take over the club,” said Gunnar Thor Gíslason to Fréttablaðið yesterday.

Hi, is that all that's been said or could you post any more details from the article? I think most Stokies are grateful to the icelanders for their investment but agree that it's time for a change.
