LONDON (Reuters) – Mike Ashley’s retail group Sports Direct International <SPD.L> said on Monday it had made a 5-pence-a-share offer for Goals Soccer Centres <GOAL.L>, the struggling football pitch operator that said last month it had misstated historical accounts.

Sports Direct – Goals’ largest shareholder with nearly 19% – said it had made the offer, which values the group’s equity at about 3.76 million pounds, on Sept. 5.
