TOWN consortium member Vidar Fossdal has been heavily involved in failed takeover talks at Oldham Athletic.
The 29-year-old was fronting a bid by a Norwegian consortium which yesterday collapsed at Boundary Park.
Bergen-based Fossdal told Town consortium partners Ken Davy and Martin Byrne about his role.
"Vidar said he was looking at Oldham on a consultancy basis for a Norwegian consortium," said Mr Byrne.
"Other than that, we know little of what's gone on."
Whether Fossdal will now continue to play a role at the McAlpine remains unclear.
Formerly a football agent with Rune Hauge, Fossdal said of the Oldham breakdown yesterday: "When I entered into the negotiations earlier this week, I genuinely believed that I had a substantial financial backer, who unfortunately has now withdrawn from the transaction."
Fossdal had reportedly paid owner Chris Moore just £1 for a 95% stake in the troubled club, but the consortium pulled out at the 11th hour.
