The club’s supporters trust confirmed that Reynolds, known for appearing in blockbusters such as “Deadpool,” and McElhenney — co-creator and star in US sitcom “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” — will have the chance to put forward their proposal for the club at a general meeting.
The trust had previously met to discuss the potential investment, with 97.5% of the members voting in favor.
“As a result, talks with the proposed bidders will now continue and we are in a position to confirm the two people interested in investing in Wrexham AFC,” read a statement from the Wrexham Supporters Trust Board on Wednesday.
“In due course, Mr. McElhenney and Mr. Reynolds will put forward their vision for Wrexham AFC and proposal for members to vote on at a second Special General Meeting.”
The exact nature of the bid is so far unclear but the latest news follows a club statement last week which confirmed the potential investors would immediately invest around $2.5 million.
