Mike Ashley sues Tony Jimenez over French golf course deal



Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley is suing a business associate over an investment in a French golf course.

 
Papers lodged at the High Court in London allege breach of contract over a deal with Tony Jimenez made in 2008.


Mr Ashley, who also owns Newcastle United Football Club, is demanding the return of a £3m investment or compensation.


In a statement Mr Jimenez, who lives in Dubai, said the claim was "fabricated and malicious".


"Mike Ashley will regret the day he embarked on this action," he said.
"His claim is without foundation and his allegations are entirely untrue."
