Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are the two stars who are both in talks to buy Wrexham AFC

Actors were cleared to start discussions by the Wrexham Supporters Trust Board (WST) after a special general meeting

1,223 members voted in favor of the talks, or 975 percent of the vote

The board has since confirmed that Ryan and Rob, both 43, are the two bidders interested in investing with the football club

In a statement, they said: « Discussions with the proposed bidders will now continue and we are able to confirm the two people interested in investing in Wrexham AFC

« When the time comes, MM McElhenney and Reynolds to Present Their Vision for Wrexham AFC and Propose Members to Vote at Second Special General Meeting »

After the initial vote, Ryan and Rob will share a proposal, with a second vote, with members ready to accept or reject the offer

Ryan also confirmed this exciting news on Twitter, after responding to a tweet posted by a fan in 2012 that read: « You never know when Ryan Reynolds is going to show up in Wrexham »

« Yeah, you never know, » he replied, « I waited 8 years to respond to that tweet »

It comes after The Leader first reported last week that « two extremely well-known high net worth individuals » approached the WST with a lucrative offer

A spokesperson told the publication: “Investors, who want their identities to remain anonymous until WST members have cleared the board for further discussions, are seeking to purchase the entire capital shared from Wrexham AFC Limited

« Aside from buying Wrexham AFC Limited for a nominal fee, they also intend to immediately invest £ 2million in the club in order to take it forward as a business and as a successful football team »

They continued: « Professional advisers from the WEST and external consider the indicative offer to be fully credible

« They consider that a potential credible investment offer of the magnitude of £ 2million should be assessed and negotiated, so that a firm proposal can be presented to members as quickly as possible »

Wrexham chief executive Spencer Harris has since told the PA news agency about the investment: « We’re still at the stage where we need to finalize the deal and bring it back to the members in a second AGM

« But I’d like to think Rob and Ryan think Wrexham is an attractive prospect with fantastic potential »

He continued: « People with the professionalism of Rob and Ryan don’t come very often and the news of their interest is quite exciting for the supporters I’m sure. They are highly motivated individuals and very successful people in their industry

« But from our discussions, I can say that they are both down to earth and want the best for the club »
