Nigeria's Diamond Bank expects to conclude sale of UK unit this year

LAGOS, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Nigeria’s Diamond Bank expects to conclude the sale of its British unit before the end of the year and is going through a change of ownership, its chief executive said on Tuesday.

The mid-tier lender struck a deal with British industrialist Sanjeev Gupta earlier this year.

The lender expects loans to grow 5 percent by the end of the year after credit declined in first half.
