The Associated Press reported that Fox, which already has a 39 percent stake in Sky, raised its offer to 14 pounds per share ($18.58), more than Comcast's latest offer but not equivalent to the value Sky was trading at on Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, 21st Century Fox said it had a reached a deal to buy Sky that valued it at £24.5 billion, or about $32.5 billion.
Sky is at the centre of a transatlantic takeover tussle between Mr Murdoch's Fox and Comcast, which owns NBC, Universal film studios and E!.
The speed with which Comcast's Brian Roberts returned with a higher offer was created to show how determined he is to buy the group which is present in 23 million homes across Europe. Wright's predecessor had previously indicated the deal could go through if Sky was ultimately sold to a third party, like Disney. The complaint alleges that Fox's prospectus filed to the Securities and Exchange Commission after the company accepted Disney's offer was incomplete.
Or, if Comcast is reluctant to forfeit a stake in Sky, it could drop its bid for the bulk of Fox's entertainment assets, he said.
