The Football League tonight confirmed Portsmouth will lose their membership if the Pompey Supporters Trust's bid to buy the club fails.
This afternoon Portsmouth's administrators, PKF, said they had received a new offer to buy the troubled club from former Football League chairman Keith Harris, which would rival the PST's bid.
Despite the football financier wanting the fans' group to be involved in the proposed takeover, the Football League has released a statement stating it will not consider any new bids for the struggling south coast outfit.
