Derby County are in talks with US investors.
It is thought it covers the club's estimated £25m debt and leaves boss Paul Jewell with money to spend.
Pearson told BBC Radio Derby: "They are a very good potential partner."
He added: "They have got a great sports experience in the US and know what running a football club is all about.
"We have that local expertise as well and hopefully the two allied together will make a very nice mix for the club going forward.
"We have a board meeting on Monday and I'm sure it will be a big topic."
