Sky Sports News' chief news reporter Bryan Swanson understands no bids have yet been made after Mike Ashley put the club up for sale following their relegation to the Championship.

Ashley is believed to want in the region of £100m and Swanson has been told there is every expectation a deal will be concluded 'quickly' after a 'high level of interest'.

It's understood the two parties who have expressed an interest did not approach the club when it was initially put up for sale in September last year.
