Wembley Stadium could still be bought by Fulham owner Shahid Khan if the “divisive” issues that made him withdraw his bid were overcome, according to reports.

Khan had offered £600m for the stadium, but withdrew before the Football Association Council had the chance to decide on the sale.

In his programme notes for the club’s Premier League game with Bournemouth on Saturday, the Fulham owner gave an indication that he could still purchase the stadium.

He said, “I have no regrets and wish nothing but a promising and rewarding future for the Football Association and the game in England.

“There may be a time when we revisit the opportunity, but no further consideration is possible until or unless there is unity within the English football community that privatisation of Wembley Stadium is the answer to the needs of grassroots football.

“I do thank Greg Clarke, Martin Glenn and the FA, as well as members of the FA Council, for their sincere consideration of my proposal. Should circumstances one day change, perhaps we can have a new conversation.”
