Oldham Athletic confirm HMRC visit


Oldham Athletic say they are "co-operating fully" with officers from HM Revenue and Customs who visited the club on Monday. 

Oldham chief executive Mark Moisley told BBC Radio Manchester that a number of officials arrived in the morning.

Moisley confirmed that he had spoke with them and they went through paperwork before taking some away with them. He added that the visit would not have any effect on a proposed takeover of the club which is ongoing.

Majority shareholder Simon Corney has made contact with the English Football League about a potential sale of the club, with the league required to review any takeover offer.

There have also been negotiations regarding investment this season, with Abdallah Lemsagam, a Moroccan agent,­ linked with buying a stake in the club.

Oldham have been issued with a number of winding up petitions in previous years, the most recent of which, in June 2016, was eventually cleared after payment.

They were also subject to a transfer embargo from November 2016 to January 2017 because of outstanding frees owed to other clubs.
