The American sports mogul and majority owner will buy the 30 per cent stake held by the Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov for £550 million (S$971 million), with the deal valuing the club at £1.8 billion.
Those partially public forums are now likely to end as Arsenal prepares to become entirely privately owned like most of the rest of its EPL club rivals.
The deal ends a standoff between the two tycoons, who had both battled for control, but it has angered the small group of well-connected independent shareholders who see themselves as guardians of the 132-year-old club.

Supporters of the club described the bid by Kroenke to take full ownership as "dreadful" in part because fans will no longer be able to hold shares in the business.
