FORMER Swindon Town owner Lee Power is reportedly in advanced talks to buy top-flight Bulgarian side Pirin Blagoevgrad.

Team Sport's Rosen Angelov in Bulgaria has said Power - who was forced to sell Swindon Town to Australian businessman Clem Morfuni back in July - has already held talks with current Eaglets owner Paul Belogur and has seen his representatives travel out to Blagoevgrad last week for a tour of the facilities.

Meanwhile, Bulgarian journalist Metodi Shumanov confirmed on Twitter that Belogur is looking to sell the club, of which ex-Northern Ireland international Warren Feeney is currently the manager.

According to Tema Sport, Pirin and Power are hoping to have reached an agreement for the latter to takeover by the start of 2022.

Pirin is currently second bottom of the First League and is facing a battle to remain in the top flight after just three wins from 16 fixtures. According to Angelov, Feeney has been informed the manager's job is safe and he is likely to remain in charge until the new year no matter what happens results-wise.

If Power is successful in buying Pirin, it would be the sixth club with which the 49-year-old has been involved at boardroom level following spells with Luton Town, Cambridge United, Rushden & Diamonds, Waterford, and Swindon Town.
