Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (>> Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.) helped Knight Capital Group Inc. (>> Knight Capital Group Inc.) unwind its unintended stock purchases late Wednesday, buying Knight's unwanted positions in one block sale, CNBC reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Goldman charged $440 million for the transaction, the people said.

CNBC reported that Knight has three business days to settle.

In a statement early Thursday, Knight said it had "traded out of its entire erroneous trade position, which has resulted in a realized pre-tax loss of approximately $440 million."

The New York Times reported Friday that Knight is in discussions for a potential sale of its futures brokerage unit with R.J. O'Brien and other potential buyers, citing people briefed on the matter.

The Times report also mentioned Peak6 as a potential buyer of Knight assets.
