‘Dead­pool’ star Reynolds in Wrex­ham takeover talks

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport - By James Ducker

He is bet­ter known as a mask-wear­ing Hollywood ac­tor in the Dead­pool films, but Ryan Reynolds’ am­bi­tions could now ex­tend to in­vest­ing in non-League Wrex­ham.

Reynolds last night con­firmed on Twit­ter that he and fel­low Amer­i­can ac­tor Rob McEl­hen­ney had been in talks with the Na­tional League side.

Reynolds, who is mar­ried to ac­tress Blake Lively, and McEl­hen­ney, who is best known for his role in the hit sit­com, It’s Al­ways Sunny

in Philadel­phia, are ready to “put for­ward their vi­sion” for Wrex­ham at a spe­cial gen­eral meet­ing.

The fan-owned club’s mem­bers have voted over­whelm­ingly for talks to pro­ceed. A prospec­tive takeover could see Reynolds and McEl­hen­ney in­vest­ing around £2mil­lion into the club, which has been owned by sup­port­ers since 2011.
