Leeds United are holding talks with six possible investors, including Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) who have entered talks to buy a stake in the Yorkshire side and enter English football for the first time.
QSI, who own Ligue 1 Champions Paris Saint-Germain have been in talks with Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani and the Championship club in recent months, according to the Financial Times.
A spokesman for QSI told the Financial Times that the UK market is top of its list as they look for new opportunities.
Leeds suffered play-off heartbreak, as they were beaten 4-2 in the second-leg semi final by Derby at Elland Road, despite winning the first-leg.
