Sports Direct International on Thursday urged Debenhams board again to hold a general meeting to appoint the sportswear retailer's owner, Mike Ashley, to the board and remove nearly all the current directors.




Ashley, one of Britain's most famous and unorthodox businessmen, launched a coup earlier this month to take charge of the ailing department store chain.

The billionaire owns a near 30 percent stake in Debenhams.
