US firm interested in buying Spurs
US investment company Cain Hoy Enterprises is considering a bid to buy Tottenham Hotspur.
Despite refuting an English media report that suggested that billionaire owner Joe Lewis was looking to sell, the English Premier League club find themselves under speculation once more after Cain Hoy publicly declared their interest.
A statement from the new investment group read: "Cain Hoy confirms that it is at the preliminary stages of assessing a cash offer for Tottenham Hotspur.
"Cain Hoy's considerations are at an early stage, and there can be no certainty that any offer will ultimately be made or at what price any offer might be made."
No takeover talks
While Spurs confirmed that they had met with Cain Hoy representatives, the north London side insisted that it was to talk about financing the construction of their new stadium next to their present White Hart Lane ground, not a takeover.
"As stated in yesterday’s announcement regarding the new stadium project, THFC has been in discussions with multiple providers of finance so that the optimum financing package for the project can be achieved and, in the course of those considerations, has met representatives of Cain Hoy," said a club statement.
"However, there are no ongoing discussions with Cain Hoy."
