​Fulham owner Khan writes letter to FA over Wembley

Fulham owner Shahid Khan has written a letter to the Football Association regarding the sale of Wembley.

Khan is attempting to buy the national team stadium as part of a plan to play NFL games there with his team the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The full letter was obtained by the Evening Standard.

In the letter, Khan says that he will respect the traditions of Wembley, keep Fulham at Craven Cottage, and will ensure Wembley remains "the national stadium of England and the traditional home of English football".

There is a lot of debate about whether the FA should sell Wembley, with some in favour of the move as it would raise funds for youth team football.

But ex-footballers such as Gary Neville believe Wembley is too important to the nation to sell.
