Portsmouth administrators have confirmed that they have reached a conditional agreement with the Pompey Supporters' Trust over the sale of the financially stricken club.
A statement on the club's official website said: "We can confirm that we have signed a sale agreement with the Pompey Supporters' Trust (PST) to acquire the business of Portsmouth Football Club.
"Portpin has rejected the Trust's offer for Fratton Park, so the sale has to be conditional on receiving the Court's permission to sell the ground. We are therefore in the process of submitting an application to the Court.
"I'm sure every member of staff, every player and every supporter will join me in wishing to see a speedy resolution to what has been a protracted administration."
Portsmouth fell into administration in February.
