Ridsdale plays down Wrexham move
Peter Ridsdale
Ridsdale says he has been in talks with four Football League clubs
Former Leeds and Barnsley chairman Peter Ridsdale has admitted he has had talks with troubled League One club Wrexham over a possible buy-out.

But he said he was unlikely to pursue a takeover, telling Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "I'm talking to them but I think it's unlikely."

Ridsdale revealed he was in discussions with four Football League clubs and expected an announcement soon.

"I think I will be back in some shape or form very quickly," he added.

Wrexham went into administration in December and were docked 10 league points as a result, leaving them in danger of relegation.

Ridsdale has been looking to get back into football after handing over the Barnsley chairmanship to Gordon Shepherd on Christmas Eve.
