English billionaire Marwan Koukash has ruled out buying Wests Tigers after cutting down his NRL options to “one or two” clubs.
The one-time Palestinian refugee, has publicly stated his interest in buying an NRL club.
The 55-year-old is expected to fly out to Australia in October, but is yet to make him his mind which club to buy into.
Koukash told Sky Sports Big Sports Breakfast on Thursday that infighting between the Wests and Balmain factions of the club had been a turn off.
“It’s not something that would be of interest to me, no,” Koukash said.
“That’s too complicated for me. I’m going to pass on that.”
Asked if he was interested in buying the Newcastle Knights, Koukash said it was “no secret” that they were one of the clubs he was interested in.
“It’s definitely one of the clubs that I’m looking at,” he said.
Koukash rescued the Salford Red Devils from financial ruin in 2013 and helped the former wooden spooners move up to 10th on the Super League table this season.
