Sheffield United insists that Prince Abudullah is their owner

Sheffield United has clarified that Prince Abdullah remains their owner after a Companies House report suggested otherwise.

An announcement by Companies House on Thursday said Prince Abdullah ceased to be "a person with significant control" of the Premier League club on October 18, 2019.

The Saudi billionaire won a court battle to take over the club from former owner Kevin McCabe on 16 September and was listed as a person of significant control a month later. 

The filings were made public on February 20.

The club said: "Sheffield United has received a number of questions in relation to filings with Companies House that were made today [Thursday] by the club and its direct parent company, Blades Leisure Limited.

"The club confirms that there has been no change in ownership of the shares in either The Sheffield United Football Club Limited or Blades Leisure Limited.

"The filings at Companies House were made to allow Companies House to accurately reflect that ownership on the public record and not to disclose any change.

"Accordingly, HRH Prince Abdullah bin Mosa'ad bin Abdulaziz Al Sa'ud remains the ultimate owner and controller of Blades Leisure Limited and its subsidiary, The Sheffield United Football Club Limited.

"The Club expects that the public record will be updated by Companies House to reflect the filings referred to above in the coming days."
