A takeover of League Two club Yeovil Town by an American investor is imminent, report BBC Somerset.

A deal has been agreed but now requires ratification from the English Football League and the Football Association.

Football consultant Mark Palmer, who began working for the Glovers in an advisory capacity in October 2017, has been key to facilitating the deal.

The takeover does not involve the consortium who previously tried to buy the Somerset club just over a year ago.

The new owner will assume a controlling stake in the club and is believed to have already been backing first-team manager Darren Way in the January transfer window.

It is understood the club are not set to reveal the new owner's identity until the sale has been ratified, following the completion of the EFL's Owners' and Directors' Test.

It is not yet clear which personnel would be on the new board, which currently includes Norman Hayward as vice-chairman and director, John Fry as chairman and David Mills as chief operating officer.

Yeovil were in the Isthmian League at the start of current chairman Fry's reign, 23 years ago, and had a brief spell playing as high as the Championship in 2013-14 before consecutive relegations.

Word on the street is that Hallett wants to replicate his Argyle success by building a portfolio of lower league clubs.

For yeovils sake i hope its not another long lost fan who's not bothered about winning but is all about buying the ground while telling the local community he's doing them a favour.

Me and my big mouth....

League Two Yeovil Town will be taken over by American investor Rob Couhig next month, the club have confirmed.

Couhig, who runs his own legal firm in the United States, will head up Feliciana EFL Limited which is taking control from current chairman John Fry.

Fry has been at the helm at Huish Park for 23 years, guiding the club from the Isthmian League to a season in the Championship in 2013-14.

The deal is subject to approval by the English Football League.

It is understood Couhig will buy 92% of Yeovil Town Holdings Ltd which owns the football club, Huish Park Stadium and surrounding land.


The 69-year-old has twice stood unsuccessfully for election as mayor of New Orleans and has previously owned the New Orleans Zephyrs baseball team which plays at triple-A level, one rung below Major League Baseball.

It is not yet known who will make up the new board at the club, but it is believed that Couhig's group helped back first-team manager Darren Way in the January transfer window.

The Glovers are one place and one point off the League two relegation places, and could drop into the bottom two if Notts County win on Tuesday.
