Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood insists there's no chance of selling the club.

Hill-Wood last night insisted he was in the dark about a supposed £1.5b Middle-Eastern takeover of the club.

“I have heard nothing and I don’t think anybody knows anything about it at the club,” he told the Daily Star.

“It all seems a bit of a waste of time.

“If there is this consortium, they can’t make any progress unless they attempt to get in touch.

“So I can’t say if there is anything to it or not.

“But even if they did make an approach, my understanding is our two major shareholders do not want to sell.”
