Gillingham owner Paul Scally is in talks with an American buyer.
Scally was due to meet the potential investors to try and sign off the takeover last week.

However, the Kent League One club could have the new money shortly in a massive lift during the shutdown after months of seeking fresh backing.
The American group have been looking to buy an English club for several months.
Now they focused on Gills because it makes financial sense.
