THE deal that will see Lee Power lose his grip on Swindon Town is set to go through in the coming days.

According to Trust STFC board member James Spencer, Clem Morfuni will take ownership.

A High Court judge had ordered Power to offer to sell all 85 shares in Swindon to Morfuni’s Axis, and Trust STFC expect the deal ‘to be completed in the next couple of weeks’.

The news comes after the Swindon Town Official Supporters Club held a Facebook chat with three Trust STFC members, including Mr Spencer, over the situation.

He said: “We at the Trust are extremely optimistic. We expect the process to be completed in the next couple of weeks.”

Trust STFC say they have great faith in Mr Morfuni, with some plans outlined by the Australian businessman leading to Mr Spencer being excited for what’s to come.

He said: “We’ve been told by Clem’s lawyers that they are going as fast as they can.

“His plan is realistic. We’ve had people before come in, saying this and that. He came up with a plan of what to do.

“He wants to put a new CEO in place. He wants to engage with the community more. There are plans to set up an engagement board where fans work with the club to get feedback. It’s a realistic plan, not pie in the sky.”

With Town's first pre-season game against Supermarine pushed back two weeks due to the instability over the ownership situation, Town fans will be hopeful of seeing new players through the door before then, but Town now face a race against the clock to be ready for pre-season with an already thin squad.

Another step that the club still needs to take is the appointment of a new manager and assistant following the departures of John McGreal and Rene Gilmartin.

Other issues that remain within the club include the County Ground itself, an issue raised by Mr Spencer which should see a turnaround in fortune upon the imminent takeover.

He said: “The County Ground is in a state.

“There are problems with the plumbing and toiletries. It needs to be a nice place where people can come.”

He added: “The news about the manager and assistant was disappointing for fans, but the departure of Steve Anderson is a positive sign that things are moving in the right direction.”
