Sources: Days remain till Everton’s £200 million “disaster” decision.

Sources have informed Football Insider that 777 Partners, in the event of their takeover bid for Everton being rejected by the Premier League, plan to promptly recall the majority of their £190 million loans to the club.

The US-based group had reached a £500 million agreement to acquire Farhad Moshiri’s

controlling stake in Everton back in September.

However, their acquisition is pending approval from the Premier

League, with concerns arising regarding the source of their funding.

The decision on whether to approve or decline the takeover is anticipated to be made by the end of February, according to reports from The Telegraph.

Meanwhile, 777 Partners has provided multiple loan arrangements to Everton to aid with

operational expenses and the costs associated with stadium construction while awaiting

Premier League approval.

Notably, 777 Partners included a ‘recall clause’ in their initial £100 million loan,

which could be activated if they are dissatisfied with the new ownership.

According to the Daily Mail, 777 is poised to extend an additional £30 million loan to Everton

this month, increasing the total owed amount to over £190 million.

Football Insider’s sources reveal that if the Premier League rejects 777 Partners’ takeover bid, they will swiftly demand repayment of their loans.

This would present Everton with a substantial debt burden, potentially posing significant

challenges for the club as they strive to cover daily expenses under Moshiri’s ownership.

However, if the takeover bid is unsuccessful, it would open the door for other interested parties to engage in discussions with Moshiri regarding a potential deal.

Reports suggest that various US-based groups are monitoring the situation closely, prepared

to explore alternative opportunities should the proposed takeover with 777 Partners fall through.
