And now the Daily Mail have claimed that the League One side are on the verge of being purchased by entrepreneur Johal.

Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who lives in Morecambe, was offered the chance to buy the club back in October and already invests in the club.

But the Gypsy King is set to lose out.

That’s because Howse has confirmed Johal is in the process of becoming the new owner and is eager to get the deal completed.

He said: “Sarbjot, through his company Sarb Capital, has recently purchased equity in the club, injecting more than useful income into us.

“I am, along with Sarbjot, keen that the process should now move on at pace to come to a positive conclusion.”

If he passes the league’s regulations, he’ll become the youngest owner in the EFL.

Despite the good news off the pitch, Morecambe are still having a tough time of things on the pitch.
