The man at the centre of the Manchester City takeover, Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim, has had an offer to buy Portsmouth accepted.
Al Fahim was the initial figurehead of the Abu Dhabi United Group when they took control of the Eastlands club in the summer, but is no longer involved and has instead moved to make his own Premier League investment.
Reports from the United Arab Emirates suggest that Al Fahim has been in Rome with current Pompey owner Alexandre Gaydamak, discussing the deal.
