Wyness exit leaves Green to hold sway
Retail baron Philip Green should have an even bigger say in how Everton is run following the shock departure of chief executive Keith Wyness.
Green’s close relationship with chairman Bill Kenwright is well known, but what is less widely acknowledged are the links between the Arcadia boss and one of the club’s other major shareholders, Robert Earl.
It is understood that Green not only led the negotiations for Planet Hollywood founder Earl to buy Paul Gregg’s 23 per cent in 2006 but also paid the £9million cost of the shares at the time of the transaction.
With all the stories coming out at once about Green's involvement, I think it is fair to say he is heavily involved in EFC now.
