Crystal Palace inundated with offers
Friday 26 February 2010
The administrators of Crystal Palace have confirmed that they have had interest from 36 separate buyers for the Coca-Cola Championship club after extending the deadline for bids by a fortnight.
The Eagles were placed into administration last month and deducted 10 points, and they have since dropped into the relegation zone.
Neil Warnock's side were also dumped out of the FA Cup in midweek after a replay at Aston Villa but administrator Brendan Guilfoyle remains confident of a quick sale.
He said: "We are in face to face discussion with a number of interested parties and a 14-day extension gives them the necessary time to understand the purchasing process and to finalise their offers."
The new closing date for any of the 36 parties to lodge a formal bid for the club is 5pm on Friday, March 12.
