GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs has confirmed that the retailer is in talks with HMV administrators Deloitte about acquiring some of the the entertainment chain's stores.
"We will constantly review our property portfolio based on what is available," he told The Financial Times, which put the number of stores GAME was interested in at 45. It also reported that these stores were based in locations not currently occupied by GAME.
"I would not rule out any stores becoming available, be that through an administration or normal property deals."
Gibbs added that given GAME's direct experience of administration, it was trying to act sensitively.
"We are doing everything we can to act really appropriately."
