Fox Sports to Acquire Fledgling Setanta Sports USA?

Fox Sports International is making a push to finalize a deal to secure rights from or simply buy the fledgling Setanta Sports USA, a premium sports programmer which carries several soccer and rugby leagues from around the world.

Multichannel News reports that it remains unclear what role Fox Soccer Channel would have in the move, but regardless, Fox would acquire the rights to hundreds of international soccer matches.

Fox Sports International already holds the U.S. rights to the Barclays Premiere League for the 2010-11 through 2012-13 seasons.
