FORMER Pompey owner Sulaiman Al-Fahim has ended discussions with a fans group hoping to buy the club.

Mr Al-Fahim had been in talks with the Pompey Supporters’ Trust with a view of backing its bid to buy the club.

But he revealed on his Twitter account yesterday that talks with the trust had come to an end.

He wrote: ‘It seems that we will never come into agreement.

‘I am not going to be part of the PST bid. Wish you all the best.’

He later posted: ‘Good luck, and in any time you will agree on my proposal, I am always there to be part of PST.’

The trust would not reveal the details of his proposal due to the confidential nature of discussions.

Mr Al-Fahim refused to comment when contacted by The News.

Trust spokesman Scott Mclachlan said Mr Al-Fahim’s decision to pull out of negotiations would not affect the fans’ bid.

He added: ‘Mr Al-Fahim approached the trust with the aim of joining the community buy-out but we were unable to reach agreement on the terms of his involvement within the framework of the bid.

‘We wish Mr Al-Fahim well and welcome his support for the trust and the community buy-out idea, and are sorry we could not come to an agreement.
