Talks continue to save under-threat Darlington Football Club
Darlington joint-administrator Harvey Madden has revealed talks are at "an advanced stage" with one potential purchaser of the club.
The administrators had previously set a deadline for the end of January, although it is expected that will be extended to allow more negotiations.
Any deal to retain the current Quakers set-up would rest on the agreement of major creditor Raj Singh.
Singh had failed to agree terms with potential investor Paul Wildes.
