Savi To Walk?

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, with news that Adam Murry has tabled a fresh bid for the Club, Savi is quoted as saying, on this and the deal with Middle East businessmen: "The Middle East deal relies on me committing myself to Bournemouth for three years and can only materialise if I'm prepared to do that. At this stage, I'm not 100 per cent sure whether I want to do that. To get to that deal, the club has to be funded. That is a simple fact of life. We find ourselves in this position because another deal didn't go through by January 31. I'm questioning my wishes to proceed with the Middle East people because I don't know whether I want to remain involved going forward. There is no question it is the number one deal. I've been working around the clock to do what's best for the football club in the long term. I am questioning the viability of committing myself to the football club and this deal (with Murry) would mean that I would walk away from the football club to concentrate on other things. In recent weeks, I've had to ask myself whether I would be prepared to commit myself to that deal so, if any deal is done with the Murry group, there is no question that I would immediately step down".

Meanwhile Murry is quoted as saying: "Following a series of meetings during the past few weeks, an agreement - in principle - has been reached between the Murry group, Paul Baker and Alastair Saverimutto to acquire the club's shares. This will require Jeff Mostyn to tear up his current legal agreement with Paul Baker and Sport-6 at significant personal cost and the group introducing more funds to bring some stability off the field".
