Maciek Kaminski has stepped back from talks over a potential Everton takeover.
The Telegraph reports that the Polish/ American real estate tycoon is no longer in discussions with Farhad Moshiri about buying into the club.
Kaminski had been given a period of exclusivity last summer which expired. The Telegraph claims that he had remained interested in either a complete Everton takeover or buying a significant portion. However, it is said that no talks have taken place since before the World Cup.
Kaminski purchased Greek outfit Panetolikos in December, while he has also been linked with a potential purchase of Atletico Madrid - and interest in Everton has appeared to have cooled.
Everton majority shareholder Moshiri and the Goodison Park board find themselves under fire from supporters. The Toffees have spent more than £500 million on transfers since the British/ Iranian businessman first purchased a 49.99% stake in the club in February 2016.
However, Everton narrowly avoided relegation last season and find themselves joint-bottom of the Premier League this term. In addition, the Blues have recorded losses of £372 million in the past three years.
Fans held a sit-in protest at Goodison Park after last Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Southampton campaigning for ‘sweeping changes’ to be made at the club.
Chairman Bill Kenwright, CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale, chief finance & strategy officer Grant Ingles and non-executive director Graeme Sharp did not attend the game because of a “real and credible threat to their safety and security”.
