Wycombe Wanderers have put the talks to buy Reading's Bearwood training facility 'on hold' due to 'seeming planning limitations allowing only Reading FC to use the training grounds.'

The Chairboys had signed an exclusivity agreement with the club to purchase the state-of-the-art facility, but supporters were left up in arms and protested outside Adam's Park.

A delve into Wokingham Borough Planning showed that permission was only granted to use for Reading Football Club, something which was sent to Wycombe last week.

In a latest twist, talks are now on hold with the club while interested parties are in talks with Dai Yongge and his people over purchasing the club.

"Wycombe Wanderers Football Club are putting on hold provision for funding to Reading Football Club and the acquisition of the Bearwood Park training facility from its owners," a club statement read.

"A little over a week ago, Reading Football Club announced that it was selling its training ground. Wycombe’s majority investor, Feliciana EFL Ltd, made a proposal to purchase the grounds. Many of the details were still to be worked out, including potential sharing with Reading and how to ensure a smooth transition.

"Importantly, it was agreed that while the details were being finalised and due diligence carried out, Feliciana would provide sufficient financing to Reading to allow it to pay its tax obligations and operating expenses, including payroll for the staff and players.

"It was Wycombe and Feliciana’s belief that they were helping Reading and professional football with the offer to assist its neighbour in a manner that had historically been used in the past by many football clubs. Indeed, Wycombe’s own training ground had been sold over a decade ago to reduce operating expenses and fund the club when the club had its own financial issues.

"Wycombe Wanderers Football Club and Feliciana have to put on hold the discussions and ongoing due diligence due to seeming planning limitations allowing only Reading FC to use the training grounds.

"Wycombe continues to wish its neighbours good luck in solving its issues. For its part, Wycombe will continue its search for a training ground that meets its ambitions for the Club."
