The sale of Crawley Town to Turkish buyers is expected to be completed next week.

The club has announced that contracts are expected to be exchanged on Friday, February 12.

The buyers have filed an application to the Football League with regard to the owners and directors test, but no money has changed hands so far.

The club has also confirmed that board changes would be expected if the takeover is completed.

The buyers also have experience in European football and if the takeover does not go ahead, another British consortium are keen to do a deal.

Chief executive Michael Dunford also revealed that the takeover did not have any effect on activity during the January transfer window, but the board and benefactors have provided further funds on top of the pre-arranged budget to add loan players to the squad during the season to date.
