Second consortium seek Saints as takeover heats up

Marc Jackson, a Dorset businessman has been following the sale of the club very closely has now revealed his interest and that he had a current international manager lined up to be in charge of the side for next season.

Jackson, who wanted to buy Bournemouth last year, revealed that joint administrator Mark Fry from Begbies Traynor got in contact with him this week.

"Yes, they have recently contacted us.' He told the Daily Echo.

I would say Le Tiss, but Pinnacle seem to be stalling too much. If you take Le Tiss out of the Pinnacle equation then I don't know if I'd prefer Pinnacle.
