The New York Yankees - one of the world's biggest sporting institutions - are apparently interested in buying Notts County, one of the lowest-ranked clubs in the English Football League.

According to the Nottingham Post, the owners behind the global baseball franchise, the Steinbrenner family, are interested in jumping on the football bandwagon, and County's history and tradition is appealing.

Founded in 1862, County are recognised as the oldest association football club currently playing at a professional level, and their black and white kits famously inspired Juventus to follow suit.

Hal Steinbrenner is thought to be worth somewhere in the region of $2-3 billion, so coming up with a buyout for the English League Two side probably wouldn't be too difficult, but coming up with transfer funds for an assault on reaching the Premier League? That could be more difficult.
