Sports Direct pushes for Mike Ashley's appointment to Debenhams board

March 21 (Reuters) - 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.
