LONDON (AP) — Manchester City agreed Monday to a takeover by a United Arab Emirates business group, ending former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's brief ownership of the Premier League club.

The Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment will look at the club's accounts and contracts before completion of a deal believed to be worth $360 million.

The group reached agreement late Sunday with Thaksin, board member Sulaiman al-Fahim told The Associated Press.
