Portsmouth’s fan takeover twist

Portsmouth have been thrown into another takeover twist following former owner Balram Chainrai confirming he had made a fresh bid for the club in the last 24 hours.

Chainrai who had withdrawn an offer for Pompey last week has flung supporters into confusion today, with the club’s administrator confirming Chainrai had made a new bid for the club.

Birch told press: “We have been working with the Trust since Portpin’s original offer was withdrawn and understand that the Trust is on track to submit a business plan and revised offer tomorrow.
“We will assess its bid once it has been submitted and will then determine which offer provides the best deal for creditors, as is our duty as court appointed administrators.”
