Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny’s takeover of National League side Wrexham has moved a step closer.
Reynolds and fellow actor McElhenney have previously spoke of their plans to make the Wales-based club into a ‘global force’.
And those dreams Wrexham fans have are edging closer to becoming a reality with the club receiving clearance from the Financial Conduct Authority and hope to complete the sale next week.
Wrexham Supporters Trust members voted 98.6 per cent in favour to accept the offer in November and contracts were exchanged last month.
A club statement read: “Wrexham Supporters Trust are pleased to inform supporters we have today received such approval from the FCA.
“Both parties shall now work to formally complete the sale of shares in Wrexham AFC next week.
“We would like to thank supporters for their patience in this process and reassure you the Wrexham Supporters Trust will make a full statement once this is completed.”
The actors made a donation to the club to help in the January transfer window while they waited for the green light on the takeover.
Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore is to act as an advisor to the new owners.
