CLEM Morfuni has been approved as Swindon Town's new owner by the EFL after passing the league's owners' and directors' test.

Mr Morfuni now only has to "conclude any associated transactions" with former owner Lee Power before he can be officially announced as Town's new owner.

Earlier on Tuesday, it was reported that Mr Power has already transferred his shares to Mr Morfuni - although this is yet to be officially confirmed by either party.

Mr Morfuni has travelled to the UK to complete the deal which would see him take over at the County Ground less than three weeks before the start of the new League Two season.

In a statement from the EFL, the league said: "The EFL is today in a position to confirm it has issued consent to the acquisition of the additional shares in Swindon Town by Mr Clem Morfuni in accordance with EFL Regulations, and it is now a matter for the shareholders to conclude any associated transactions.

"The EFL is looking forward to working with the new ownership as they seek to ensure a successful and viable long-term future for the Club.

"In addition, to these developments the League continues to review a number of matters relating to the previous ownership arrangements at the Club."
