I can't go in to too much detail at the moment, that will be up to the consortium when they are ready, but I can confirm that if the sale does go through they will want to take a fresh approach in regard to the East Stand and work has stopped until new plans have been drawn up with Buckinghams. "These things do take time, but all parties are working to bring matters to a conclusion as soon as possible and we will update supporters as and when we can."
