DEAN KEATES admits there could be "exciting times" ahead if a takeover of Wrexham Football Club is completed but the Reds boss insists his job won't change regardless of the outcome.

The club has been approached by two "extremely well-known individuals of high net worth" who are looking to purchase the entire shared capital of Wrexham AFC Limited.

As well as the purchase of the club for a nominal sum, they also intend to immediately invest £2 million into the club for the purposes of taking it forward as a business and as a successful football team.

A Special General Meeting (SGM) of members has been called by the Wrexham Supporters Trust Board (WST), to be held on Tuesday September 22 from 7pm, following the approach to purchase the club.

The investors wish for their identities to remain anonymous until WST members have authorised the board to proceed with discussions, although director Spencer Harris says the offer is "entirely credible".

It is just a case of carry on regardless as far as Keates is concerned.

"The football club is massive to the town," said Keates.

"It has been mistreated before but if the fans vote for it and the board do due diligence with the potential investors and everything is right, then that is something that will happen.

"If that is the case and somebody makes that investment, then so be it and it will give a chance for the football club to go forward.

"There are a lot of ifs and buts, we will just see what happens over the next few weeks.

"What you hear what the investment could be, it would be amazing if it was put into the football club but we won't get carried away from our side.

"It could be exciting times for the town but it has got to go through a voting process first."

Keates is preparing for Wrexham's 13th season in non-league and he is optimistic about the Reds' chances after revamping his squad.

"What happens away from the football pitch is above and beyond us," added Keates.

"The football club is community owned so if the fans vote for it, then it is the next step for the football club.

"On our side, we will just prepare and get ourselves as ready as we can; I believe we have got a squad that can push this season for this football club to get back to where it wants to be.

"If that is under fan-owned ownership or under invested ownership, what will be will be. That is not for us to decide."
