Sheffield United received a £3million loan from a member of the Bin Laden family, a court was told on Thursday.

Details emerged on day four of the High Court hearing into the bitter battle for ownership of the Blades about the source of a loan at the heart of a dispute between the co-owners of the South Yorkshire club recently promoted to the Premier League.


Long-standing chairman and lifelong Blades supporter Kevin McCabe sold 50 per cent of the club to Prince Abdullah Bin Mosaad Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in return for an investment of £10million in 2013.
