Portsmouth say any potential takeover will be closely scrutinised following reported interest from ex-Walt Disney chief executive Michael Eisner.

Eisner, a former president of Paramount Pictures, has previously considered investing in Championship club Reading.

The 75-year-old billionaire is believed to be actively pursuing football interests through his investment firm.

League Two Pompey said in a statement that "a robust process is in place to deal with any potential offers".

Portsmouth, who have been a fan-owned club since exiting administration in 2013 with the Supporters' Trust (PST) as majority shareholders, declined to comment on any specific interest.

"If we receive an offer, ultimately it will be for all our shareholders to decide if it would be in the club's best interest," the statement added.

Eisner set up Tornante as a private company following his departure from Disney in 2005, which has interests in media and entertainment companies.

The PST board have also responded to reports in the Portsmouth News of his alleged interest.

"Retaining an ownership stake will be central to any discussions we enter in to," its statement said.

"A club such as ours, with its incredible fan base, is bound to attract interest from possible buyers. It is our duty to listen to any serious and credible offer for the football club."

Portsmouth are currently in the League Two automatic promotion places with eight games remaining this season

Eisner is a first class twat.

He found out who his friends were once he stopped being the biggest Agent in town.

Here is the list.

The asking price for Pompey is probably less. Jimmy is probably asking for too much money. I think we are being overvalued

Why would any self respecting rich "benign dictator" as Tringy calls them, rock up and park their motorhome in Plymouth ?  It hasn't happened in 125 years. Riga is a more attractive proposition.
We've got a philanthropist banker though, and Clym Yeobright, erstwhile of Plymouth College and Disneyland pig jocolor

Sorry... I got my "michael's" mixed up. Eisner is okay. Did really well at Disney.

Mike Ovitz is the twat. "The most powerful man in Hollywood". He also ran Disney for a short time. But best known for his time at CAA talent agency.
