Shinawatra's increase share

Thaksin Shinawatra's bid to gain control of more than 75% of the club appears to be gathering pace with the news that a further 5,343,622 shares were sold today, at the offer price of 40p - likely BSkyB's share of just under 10% in the club.

This holding would give him around 65% of the club and further push on with plans to rubber-stamp the appointment of Sven-Goran Eriksson as manager.
