Tottenham vice-chairman Paul Kemsley is being linked with a takeover bid for the club.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants to loosen his ties with Tottenham, and is looking for a big investor to take the club to the next level - breaking into the big four in England and securing regular Champions League football.
Levy and his company ENIC agreed in the summer to buy former chairman Sir Alan Sugar's 12 per cent stake in Spurs for £25m, which took ENIC's share in the club to 66 per cent.
But ENIC and Levy have since been looking for buyers, and he may find one on his own board.
Bahamas-based currency speculator billionaire Joe Lewis, the man behind ENIC, is also thought to be keen on pursuing other interests.
