Perth Glory has denied that the club is set to be bought by Dutch side FC Utrecht.
Speculation is mounting that Utrecht is keen to purchase the A-League club and has made an offer.
FourFourTwo understands the Eredivise outfit is interested in buying 80% of Perth, which would leave current owner Tony Sage with a 20% stake.
Glory have admitted they have received interest from groups outside Australia in buying the club, but deny a deal is being currently negotiated.
“There has been plenty of interest from overseas investors to purchase the club and this interest has increased since the sale of Adelaide United,” Club CEO Peter Filopoulos said in a statement.
“However, at this point in time, our owner Tony Sage has expressed no interest in selling the club.”
Sage took over full ownership of Perth in 2008 after buying out Brett McKeon.
It has been a rollecoaster decade at Glory under Sage’s watch, with the club reaching the A-League grand final in 2012 and two FFA Cup finals, but also caught breaching the salary cap in 2015.
Adelaide United were bought by a Dutch-based consortium earlier this month.
