NFL chief Mark Waller believes Shahid Khans potential purchase of Wembley is a powerful sign of his commitment to grow the sport in the UK.

The National Football Leagues executive vice-president of events and international released a statement on the news of a £1billion deal being brokered by the Jacksonville Jaguars owner.

And Waller revealed his delight at the latest information, which could see the home of English football sold with NFL games taking priority over Three Lions games in the future.

He said: “We are very happy for Shad Khan and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The potential purchase of Wembley Stadium is a further powerful sign of their commitment to the UK and their vision to help us grow the sport.

“Having stadium options in London has always been critical to the NFL and, in tandem with our 10-year partnership with Tottenham Hotspur, this new relationship would allow for even greater flexibility in scheduling future NFL games in London.”
