MANDY Koukash has all but conceded defeat in her bid to buy Bradford Bulls after announcing she does not expect her offer to be accepted, reports the Bradford and Telegraph and Argus.

The wife of Salford Red Devils owner Dr Marwan Koukash attended Sunday's home game against Huddersfield with her husband and two children.

But Mrs Koukash, from Rainford, took to Twitter this morning to say that she believes her bid will not be accepted by Leeds-based administrator David Wilson.

She tweeted: "I am hearing my bid will not be the winning one. My bid was focused in helping the Bulls.

"As I understand, the RFL has nothing to do with the decision. It is based on the highest bid to pay the old debt.

"Would like to wish all other bidders the very best."

Dr Koukash confirmed his wife's bid had failed when he tweeted: "Sadly, my wife's bid to buy the Bulls will not be the winning one. As she understands, it was not the highest bid."

Other potential owners include London-based businessman Richard Lamb, a consortium led by representatives of Bradford Park Avenue Football Club and debenture holder Marc Green, who is owed upwards of £250,000 following the loan he made to OK Bulls Ltd last September.
