Moores and Noell were previously interested in investing in Swansea. The duo then spent spent six weeks taking a close look at Everton’s accounts.

Former Everton midfielder Peter Reid said the club needs higher revenues, a new stadium and added if Kenwright is willing to sell the club then it should be done.

“We’ve got a great squad of players and a good manager, but we need to get a new stadium to keep pace with the other clubs in this Premier League,” he was quoted as saying by the BBC on Monday.

“You need the revenue that generates. If Bill Kenwright says it’s ok, let’s get it done.”
