Radio station Mansfield 103.2 is planning a takeover bid for the town's football club. The station have confirmed they are in talks with local businessmen about a possible buyout.
Last week the Mansfield Town board announced they were prepared to sell the club, currently struggling in the bottom half of League Two. Earlier this week they sacked team manager Peter Shirtliff after winning just one match in the last eight.
Mansfield 103.2 Managing Director Tony Delahunty is to meet with the station's board of directors next month to talk through proposals. It's thought they would include turning the football club into more of an entertainment venue with high-profile concerts and balls, as well as providing hospitality for other events in the town.
The station has also asked Stags fans and locals in Mansfield for their views on the idea.
