Mostyn upbeat over Cherries

Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn remains confident of completing his takeover of the Dean Court club in the near future. Mostyn and his consortium hold preferred bidder status at the moment, despite a second bidder having emerged in the last few days to cloud the picture further. "I'd like to think that the offer we have made to the administrator that we're progressing now is as close as we're ever likely to get to a successful conclusion," Mostyn told the Daily Echo. "And the very fact that we're going to be moving forward with our proposals to the Football League - that we hope to have our draft in on Friday of this week - is a clear indication that we are knocking on the door of the Football League with our proposal. "Hopefully as a result of that we will, within a very short space of time, get some positive response to the application and indeed if there is any other information we need." Meanwhile, Alistair Saverimutto has been named as the new chief executive of the League Two club.
