Former Hull City chairman Paul Duffen is confident of finding a new owner for the Premier League club.
Duffen, who is working as a facilitator for current owners the Allam family, is prepared to bide his time as he aims to find the best investors for the Humberside outfit.
"I get a sense the club will find a new owner," he told Sky Sports at the Soccerex global convention in Manchester.
"They've had a couple of aborted transactions.
"They want to take their time to ensure they work with the right party, and the right party isn't always the highest bidder but the best bidder.
"My primary interest is to find the best owners for the club."
