Bournemouth are close to being taken over by a Las Vegas-based consortium, according to talkSPORT sources.
Alex Crook believes the consortium plan to develop the club’s training ground and stadium and also provide transfer funds in January to build on current owner Max Demin’s legacy.
Demin has funded the Cherries’ meteoric rise from League One strugglers to two Premier League promotions.
Bournemouth earned promotion to the Premier League in 2015 before being relegated five years later with Eddie Howe as manager.
Scott Parker took the managerial reins in the summer of 2021 and guided them to automatic promotion back to the top flight.
The Cherries made a shaky start to the season and parted company with Parker following claims he made that the club were ‘underequipped’ for the season.
Gary O’Neil has since taken interim charge of the club, his first match seeing them play out a goalless draw against Wolves.
Their last outing saw them come from 2-0 down to beat Nottingham Forest 3-2 at the City ground.

Should the deal go through, almost half of Premier League clubs would have American owners.
Arsenal, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester City have Americans who have a majority or minority shareholding.
The most recent American takeover at a top flight side came at Chelsea as Todd Boehly purchased the west London club in a £4.25billion deal.
Boehly caused controversy this week when he put forward his idea to stage a US style Premier League ‘north vs south’ match similar to America’s All-Star model.
