FFA refuse to rush through Mansion offer for North Queensland Fury
Football Federation Australia say North Queensland Fury's change of ownership may not happen for "months".
An Asian consortium, including betting giants Mansion, have expressed interest in committing $8 million to buying the club.
But the FFA instructed them to clear up a few areas of concern, including the identities of two of the three parties willing to invest.
While talks had been positive, an FFA spokesperson said they would not rush into anything.
''We want to know a whole lot more and the process is only just starting and it will happen in our time, not theirs,'' he told the Townsville Bulletin.
''The main thing is the Fury's future is assured in the A-League, we're controlling it ... and there's no rush as far as we're concerned - any interest is welcomed - but there are a whole lot of boxes to tick and hurdles to jump.''
