Premier League side Sheffield United say Prince Abdullah remains their owner despite Companies House report suggesting otherwise.
An announcement by the Companies House on Thursday said Prince Abdullah ceased to be ‘’a person of significant control’’ of the club on October 18th, 2019.
Prince Abdullah won a court battle to take over the club from former owner Kevin McCabe on September 16th and a month later he was listed as a person of significant control a month later.
On February 20th, the fillings were made public.
Sheffield United said: “Sheffield United has received a number of questions in relation to filings with Companies House that were made today [Thursday] by the club and its direct parent company, Blades Leisure Limited.
“The club confirms that there has been no change in ownership of the shares in either The Sheffield United Football Club Limited or Blades Leisure Limited.
“The filings at Companies House were made to allow Companies House to accurately reflect that ownership on the public record and not to disclose any change.
“Accordingly, HRH Prince Abdullah bin Mosa’ad bin Abdulaziz Al Sa’ud remains the ultimate owner and controller of Blades Leisure Limited and its subsidiary, The Sheffield United Football Club Limited.
“The Club expects that the public record will be updated by Companies House to reflect the filings referred to above in the coming days.”
