Koukash’s Interest in Buying NRL Club Picks Up Pace

September 19, 2014

Salford Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash has suggested it is “very, very likely” he will buy NRL club.

Koukash has been rumoured at possible buying the Newcastle Knights team and has also been reportedly interested in St George Illawarra.

“Is it likely? It’s very, very likely,” Koukash told BBC Radio on Friday (AEST) about buying an NRL club.

“Currently I’m in discussions and it’s going really, really well with at least a couple of the clubs over there and hopefully something will happen pretty soon.

“But it needs to be the right deal for me personally.”

And the 55-year-old gets what he wants.

Koukash put a broom through a cash-strapped Salford when he took over in 2013, changing their club nickname, roster, coach and – more importantly – their financial plight.
