Irish London owner Mick Crossan has revealed to the Mail Online that he is ready to give the club away for NOTHING after almost a decade of ownership.
Even before the Wasps and Worcester entered administration, Crossan was looking to sell the exiles.
‘If someone is looking to buy a rugby club with their own training ground and P shares, they don’t even have to buy it’ said Crossan.
He added: “I will give it to them as long as they fund it.
“When I got involved my aim was to keep the London Irish as a club. Otherwise they could have ended up as Swindon Irish. They are back in the heart of London now so I did what I had planned to do and I hope to secure the future of the club.
“If anyone wants to take up the torch, they are more than welcome. There is a lot to do. We want someone authentic with good governance. It’s not a question of money. It’s a matter of continuity.
“For me, at my age, it’s probably a good time for me to say I did what I set out to do. I think I did my part. The club is on a good footing, with a great academy.
