Sources close to Crawley Town have laughed off reports that the new owners have paid 4million for the club.

Turkish broadcaster NTV Radyo have claimed that the new owners have put up the equivalent of more than £3million for the League Two outfit.

That figures has been said to be ‘wildly off the mark’ by a source close to Reds.

The club revealed yesterday that the Turkish consortium had paid a deposit for Crawley Town with the contracts expected to be exchanged within the next 24 hours.

The overseas group is thought to be led by Ziya Eren, who is the president of Turkish first division side Kayseri Erciyesspor.

Eren, a 47-year-old steel magnate, is hoping to develop links between the clubs and hopes a deal will be concluded by early next week.

Reports emerged this morning that, he has paid a hefty sum of 4 million for the Broadfield Stadium based club - whose home is owned by Crawley Borough Council.
