'Two or three' new suitors express Pompey interest
Portsmouth face a winding-up order in the High Court on Wednesday
Portsmouth have been approached by "two or three" groups interested in taking over the club, according to the club's executive director Mark Jacob.
Hong Kong-based businessman Balram Chainrai last week became the debt-ridden club's fourth owner this season but is looking to quickly sell it.
And Jacob told BBC 5 Live's Sportsweek that could happen soon.
"Two or three groups have approached the board and Mr Chainrai over the possibility of taking over," he said.
Jacob, appointed by the south coast club's previous owner Ali Al-Faraj, revealed the new suitors had approached the Fratton Park board "over the last couple of days" and that talks were in "preliminary stages".
"It's quite delicate at the moment but we're confident that, yes, someone or a group will be in place very soon to move things forward to allow Mr Chainrai to step aside," he said.
