Teesside businessman Raj Singh is set to take over at Darlington, just a week after former chairman George Houghton revealed he was returning to the post.Once the deal is passed through Singh will become chairman and will obtain 100% control of the club and stadium. Singh will also own 50% of the land surrounding the stadium, with Houghton retaining possession of the other half. The new owner has also confirmed that the future of new manager Colin Todd is also secure under the new regime. Darlington's future looked in doubt when Houghton placed the club in administration in February 2009. The club were docked 10 points by the Football League which effectively ended their hopes of a play-off spot in League Two, and a new buyer was sought by the administrators.
