Harris, who bought NBA franchise Philadelphia 76s in 2011 and NHL side New Jersey Devils alongside his partner David Blitzer in 2013, has been interested in purchasing an English football club for some time and first held talks with Palace’s owners, CPFC 2010, during their recent pre-season tour of America. Palace played Philadelphia Union on 25 July, by which point Harris’s interest in Aston Villa had seemingly waned, with reports stating that Villa’s owner, Randy Lerner, valued the club at £200m.
