Bradford Bulls revealed these details in a statement, which updated supporters on the situation regarding the ownership of the club.
According to the statement, supporters had already been told details regarding the ownership at a fans forum last month.
The statement revealed Mark Moore and his fellow board members, Andrew Calvert and Ian Watt, do not own all of the shares in ‘OK Bulls Ltd’ and that the transfer is ongoing.
It has been rumoured that Omar Khan still owns 99% of the shares, but he has declined to comment due to legal action against Mark Moore and former general manager Ryan Whitcut.
A spokesperson for the Bulls’ board of directors said: “Since the fans forum, last month, we have continually strived to be open and transparent with our fans. As we informed everyone who attended that event, the club is still owned by Omar Khan and discussions to resolve the issue surrounding the club’s shares are ongoing.
“Mr Khan has publicly stated that he does not wish to take legal action against Bradford Bulls. The matter, as has been recently reported, is between individuals. The whole situation has been repeatedly explained, both to our sponsors, our supporters and members of the media.
“We are working tirelessly to secure a solid, long-term future for this great club and everyone involved here is totally committed to the cause. We refuse to be deterred by the constant negativity being generated by local press, through over sensationalism designed to help sell newspapers.
“Supporters will agree our time is best spent attempting to ensure we survive the 2014 campaign and build for a successful future. When we are in a position to update our supporters, with regards to the transfer of shares and the ownership of Bradford Bulls, a statement will be made.”
The Bradford Bulls’ statement ended with the club stating there is no further information to share and that they will be making no further comment at this time.
