Trevor Birch, PKF partner and joint administrator of Portsmouth Football Club (2010) Ltd, has released the following statement:
“We can confirm that we have received another offer for Portsmouth Football Club.
“This offer has been made by Keith Harris, a former chairman of the Football League, together with Pascal Najadi, deputy chairman of the investment bank AIAK Group, and Alan Hitchins, a professional investor.
“Keith Harris has indicated that he would like to meet with the PST to discuss a stakeholding and participation in the club going forward.
“We believe this offer is worthy of consideration and could be completed without the need for a court case.
“As officers of the court, the administrators are charged with securing the best return for all creditors and therefore have to consider the offer.
“We will need to discuss the terms of the deal with the PFA and the Football League and also plan to consult the creditors’ committee as a matter of urgency.
“This has been a complex administration and we are doing all we can to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. We will provide an update as soon as we have further news.”
