Having been interviewed by a number of media outlets today, Keith Harris has been very forthcoming over proposed interest in the club, outlining £300m as a realistic price for the club. Speaking to Sky Sports, he opened up the serious possibility that the title deeds of the club will be heading out of blighty. Harris said:

‘Whether it is the Middle East is another matter. But it is a reasonable assumption to say the new owner will not be from Britain. We have had now, for seven or eight days, seven interested parties. They are not from these shores, and that is not surprising.

Within that group, we have taken the chance to start honing down the list – so far nobody has dropped out. Nobody has said to us that is a condition for us to go forward. Nobody has said, as a pre-condition, it is this manager or that manager.”
