Millionaire businessman Alan Bowers is hoping to push through his takeover by giving Leyton Orient a deadline of Tuesday.

According to the Daily Mirror, Bowers has made owner Francesco Becchetti a £4m offer but is ready to walk away unless he gets an answer.

Sports Reporter John Cross stated the former West Ham and Norwich player is leading a consortium and has met with the directors of the east London club.

It is only one week until the O's are once again back in court after they were handed an updated winding-up petition by Centre Circle Events Management.

On March 20, they were given a stay of execution by the judge to either settle their debts or sell the club - and looks as though neither so far has been forthcoming. 

The side could face going out of business if they do not solve their financial issues quickly but can head into administration if there is substantial evidence to demonstrate that they are a going concern.

Barry Hearn is now owed rent for the stadium and revealed on social media he is looking to be a part of the petition on June 12. 

Bowers made his money after leaving professional football and set up a property company in England and Spain.

He has had support from former teammates and football contacts to come in and try and save the beloved club at E10. 

Orient's biggest fight still remains off the pitch and the future is unclear.
