The satisfaction of the charge was revealed shortly before confirmation of Kyril Louis-Dreyfus' takeover of the club was announced.

FPP Sunderland was formed by a group of American businessman closely associated with Michael Dell's MSD Capital group. They had initially held talks over a full takeover but instead opted to inject around $12 million in the form of a loan.

The deal saw them hold a charge over all of the club's assets, including the Stadium of Light and the Academy of Light.
