ANDREW Fitton has reassured Town fans the takeover deal is "getting done" but was remaining coy on setting any deadlines.

The Town suitor and Ramsbury businessman told the Swindon Advertiser this morning lawyers were still ironing out legal issues but was confident there is no need to worry.

Fitton admitted everyone was being "deliberately coy" over setting any deadlines or time frame for the completion, to avoid further panic if these were not met.

He said: "The deal is getting done. I don't think the fans need to worry about this matter particularly."

The Swindon Advertiser understand completion is still a few days away but Fitton's negotiations have bought the club more time at the hands of their creditors.

Town were on the financial brink on Thursday afternoon after Fitton withdrew from talks but a U-turn the next day has given new hope for the debt-ridden club.
