The owner of London's 100 Club has said that he is "in talks" to save the iconic venue from closure.

Jeff Horton told the Evening Standard that a potential sponsor had come forward, who may be able to offer the cash required to save the club.

Horton explained: "We are actually in talks now with somebody who's stepped forward who wants to sponsor the club.

"I can't tell you any more than that because I've signed terms so I'm tied to a confidentiality agreement."

A series of prominent music figures, including Liam Gallagher, Mick Jagger and Mick Jones, have put their backing behind the campaign to save the 100 Club, which showcased early performances by British music legends such as The Sex Pistols, The Jam and The Clash.

Paul McCartney played a one-off gig at the venue last Friday to raise awareness of its threat of closure.
