Hull KR have confirmed that they have held investment talks with businessman Tony Larvin.
The club revealed in October they were in talks with potential investors but did not name anyone.
A club statement said: "Club representatives met with Tony regarding a substantial investment in the club.
"At this stage there will be no further comment until such time as the necessary proof of funds has been delivered to the club."
The Robins endured a disappointing 2012 Super League campaign, finishing five points off the play-offs in 10th place.
In addition, the Craven Park side posted losses in the region of £500,000.
