WEMBLEY, the leisure group that owns the famous London football stadium, said yesterday it had received an approach from a second potential bidder. The company is rumoured to be SFX Entertainment, a US venue and entertainment group thought to have been in talks with Wembley's bankers.

Wembley has already received an approach from Enic, the group that owns stakes in several European football clubs. Any deal could jeopardise Wembley's plans to sell the stadium in a pounds 103m redevelopment deal.

Elsewhere in football, Leicester City said a board member had received an informal approach about a possible bid. Millwall Holdings has raised pounds 300,000 via a share placing.
