Kiwi entrepreneur confirms intent to solely purchase Warriors - 'If I had it my way, it would've been done by now'




The Warriors are in the process of changing ownership with Kiwi entrepreneur Paul Davys confirming he intends to purchase the NRL club.

Davys confirmed to 1 NEWS a deal is close to being completely agreed on  and should be finalised by the end of the week.

"If I had it my way, it would have been done by now," he said.

Davys co-directs ChoiceKids, a childcare company situated in Auckland, along with rugby league player agent Peter Brown, who was originally reported to be one of two new investors in the club.

Managing director Jim Doyle was also among the names believed to be possible new owners as he already has a 10 per cent share in the club which he purchased last year.

However, Davys told 1 NEWS he intends to own "100 per cent" of the shares of the club.
