SPECULATION is growing that an American billionaire is interested in buying Saints' biggest rivals Portsmouth FC.

It is being reported that former Walt Disney chief executive Michael Eisner is interested in buying Pompey.

Portsmouth Supporters’ Trust, which own a majority stake in the club, which are sitting in third in League Two, have issued a statement.

They say if there is a “serious and credible” offer, they will decide the outcome.

Their statement said:“A club such as ours, with its incredible fan base, is bound to attract interest from possible buyers, and it is our duty to listen to any serious and credible offer for the football club.

“If there is a serious and credible offer, our shareholders will decide the outcome.  

“The 3 PST Directors of Portsmouth Community Football Club will be fully involved in discussions. 

“We understand how much owning your club means and retaining an ownership stake will be central to any discussions we enter in to.

“We are in the process of finding a date for a shareholders meeting which will give you an opportunity to hear more information on any prospective bid to purchase the club, and a full opportunity to air your views.

“A date for this meeting will be communicated in due course.”
