On a high after his side Kolkata Knight Riders' won the Indian Premier League, actor Shah Rukh Khan is now planning to buy stakes in Dempo, one of the country's top football clubs.

Sources close to the club told that he has been in talks with the Goa based I- League champion club and has met the club's owner Srinivas Dempo a couple of times.

They said Shah Rukh was interested in acquiring 50 per cent stake in the club.

“Talks are on and he has also met the Dempo management, including the owner, a couple of times, but it is yet to be confirmed. Some things need to be worked out before finalising the deal,” a source said.

It has been learnt that the club is keen on using Shah Rukh Khan's popularity in promoting the I-League champions who have been dominating Indian football.

Dempo have won the I-league three times since its inception in 2007-08, including the inaugural edition, besides winning the erstwhile National Football League (NFL) twice.
