Write a letter to your new employer. In your letter

This is in context of the job, I am scheduled to join, next week with your firm. It with regrets that I would like to notify that I won’t be able to join the same from next week.
As you are aware, I have been working with my current employer for past 4 years as the General Manager. I had explained to my employer about me having to join with your firm from next week to which I got an agreement.
Since I have been involved in a lot of activities for the company, its not been easy for the new General Manager to take over and understand all the responsibilities in the months time of hand-over. Most critically the representatives of our biggest customer have not been in touch, hence there hasn’t been enough communication for the new GM to replace and take over his responsibities. I have henced been requested by the top manangement to extend my stay by a fortnight.
I would hereby like to request your kind permission to allow be to extend my stay in my current company by a fortnight to allow me to do a complete hand over of my current responsibilities will look forward to your acceptance of my request and joining your company a fortnight later.
