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

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.
