Cash-strapped Setanta's hopes of being rescued by a buy-out by Disney-owned broadcaster ESPN have been dashed.

ESPN have ruled out any purchase of the cash-strapped Irish firm, whose fate should be decided within the next few days, but could be interested in acquiring the rights to several sports.

Setanta said on Wednesday they were not in administration but were continuing in their bid to refinance the company.
