Kroenke moves closer to Arsenal takeover threshold

BY foxsports • November 23, 2009

American businessman Stan Kroenke has bought 10 more Arsenal shares to put him even closer to the threshold that forces him to make a takeover bid.

The Premier League club announced on Monday that Kroenke, who is also a director of the club, has control of 18,604 ordinary shares in the company, representing 29.9 percent. If he reaches 30 percent, he has to make a takeover bid.

The Denver-based businessman owns the Colorado Rapids MLS team, basketball's Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche hockey team.
