A meeting in London to determine Coventry City's future has reportedly been adjourned, meaning the club could potentially remain in administration for another six weeks.
The meeting followed this weekend's rally by Coventry supporters.
More than 5,000 fans showed their anger at plans for the team to play its home games at Northampton for at least three years.
Administrator Paul Appleton is expected to clarify the situation in a statement later this evening.
ITV News Central has been told that secret talks between Coventry City and the Ricoh Arena to try to keep the club in the city have failed.
If Coventry is going to buy land to build a new stadium just outside the city, why has it not spoken to council bosses yet?
Why is the Ricoh Arena threatening to sue Northampton Town?
