The future of Bradford Bulls has finally been secured, with a consortium led by restauranter Omar Khan believed to have taken over the club.

The four-time Super League champions have been in administration for more than two months, and the club’s administrators and the RFL were in discussions with three interested parties.

It is now believed that Khan and his consortium, which also includes MP Gerry Sutcliffe, will be officially be announced as the club’s new owners shortly.

Khan tweeted: “Omar Khan’s and Gerry Sutcliffe Save the Bradford Bulls and are the new owners of the club.”

The full details of the takeover are expected to be revealed on Saturday.

Sutcliffe added: “Thanks to all Bradford fans for your incredible patience and support. Hard work starts now. See you all tomorrow.”

Khan’s bid and a bid from Bradford Park Avenue football club emerged as the front runners to take over the Bulls last week, after Bradford City pulled out of the running.

Super League (Europe) Ltd’s offer to buy the Bulls was also on the table, but this was always seen as a last resort.
