Swindon's new owners have rubbished reports in the Daily Mirror that boss Paolo Di Canio will be sacked and replaced by Mike Newell and Brian Stein. Jed McCrory, who leads the consortium that agreed a deal to buy the club a week ago, released a statement to the Swindon Advertiser that read: "I feel the need to break the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) due to the breaking story (in the Mirror).
"I have had no contact or conversation, be it email, telephone or any other means, with Mike Newell. We are disappointed that people are putting stories together due to the uncertainty over the situation and would like to state we are looking forward to working with Paolo Di Canio and the team going forward.
"We are working tirelessly to bring the purchase of the club to an end to allow all to return to normality. As a football fan I am aware of the need to end this uncertainty as soon as possible."
