Doncaster Rovers: No rush towards sale of club

Irish consortium Sequentia Capital, headed up by property consultant Kevin Phelan, are interested in investing in Rovers and funding a push for the Premier League.

However, at a fan's forum on Wednesday, shareholder Dick Watson confirmed that Sequentia Capital's multi-million pound proposal was 'on the backburner' and that the club were also considering an alternative investment proposal from a second party.

"We're not forced to rush into a decision. We've got various options to consider," Baldwin said, speaking at the forum.

"We're a profitable football club and therefore we are attractive to investors.

"There are various people that will want to talk to us so why should we rush into a decision?

"We're going to make a decision for the long-term future of Doncaster Rovers."
