Date set for Al Fahim to complete Portsmouth takeover

Sulaiman Al Fahim will complete his takeover of Portsmouth on July 24.

That's the claim of Al Fahim ally Anil Bhoyrul, who told The News: "Yes, the takeover will be completed on Friday, July 24 - when Sulaiman Al Fahim will be the new owner of Portsmouth Football Club.

"Terms have been agreed and I know he is meeting Peter Storrie tonight in London.

"We then expect the Premier League to complete its fit-and-proper person's test next week. The deal will then officially be announced on July 24.

"I can tell you, I have seen the documentation and it is very exciting."

Bhoyrul added: "Anybody who has read the documentation I have read will be really pleased. I definitely would be if I was a Portsmouth fan.

"In fact I would rather be a Portsmouth fan than Arsenal at this stage. There are so many ways Sulaiman wants to develop the club and they are very exciting."
