LONDON (AP) An American private investment firm is considering making an offer to buy English Premier League club Tottenham.
Cain Hoy Enterprises says in a statement released Friday that it is "at the preliminary stages of assessing a cash offer" for Tottenham and must announce whether it intends to make an official bid by no later than Oct. 10.
Cain Hoy, whose headquarters are in Greenwich, Connecticut, says it was releasing the statement "without the consent of Tottenham Hotspur."
Tottenham said in a statement released Thursday that "neither the club, nor its majority shareholder, are in any takeover discussions."
