Gianni Paladini had previously been interested in buying Birmingham

Bradford City and Gianni Paladini have agreed an extension to the Italian's period of exclusivity for buying the League One club, BBC Sport understands.

The club revealed a fortnight ago that they were in talks with the former QPR chairman over a potential takeover.

The initial period of exclusivity ended on Friday but it is understood it has been extended by two weeks.

Paladini, who was interested in second-tier side Birmingham City, visited Bradford's training ground this week.

It is thought there are other parties interested in buying the FA Cup quarter-finalists.

Bradford are eighth in League One with one match of the season remaining and cannot finish in the play-off places.
