The Cherries have agreed to have Billionaire Vegas knights ice hockey team owner takeover the club.
Current Cherries owner Maxim Demin has accepted the bid from the American and the premier league are currently looking at the final paperwork which is a lengthy process.
The Las Vegas businessman is said to provide the club with funds for the January transfer window as well as for an ultramodern training facility.
🍒 @alex_crook was the first to be all over the development today, the signing of the Share Purchase Agreement by Bill Foley & Max Demin. Have had this confirmed.
As below from yesterday, will still be a wait for the PL processes before formal completion of the deal. #afcb https://t.co/amQ12XwnVO

Speaking before the Fulham game Gary O’Neil admits that “it’s a potentially exciting time for the club,” but he insists that he is only focused on “getting the next result”
Foely had watched the Cherries game at home to Leicester where he met O’Neil and the players for the first time. From then the club have seen a dip in form and have struggled to put games to bed.
O’Neil’s men have only mange four points in the last six league games since Foley watched them play. With the Qatar World Cup just round the corner it should give Bournemouth enough time to recover and rest.
Bournemouth have matched their same point tally at the same stage as when they were last in the Premier League. 16 points in 15 games played puts them in 14th in the table, also the exact same league position as last time round.
The Cherries were heavily suggested as relegation favourites at the start of the season, but on current form they may have changed a few people opinions over the course of the season so far.
Gary O’Neil had two successive wins both coming against Everton in the league cup and the Premier League just before the World Cup break. This has given him a great chance to continue as Bournemouth manager for the remaining future.
We will have to wait and see what type of impact of the new owner will have on the club to find out if they are going to move in right direction on and off the pitch, but it is certainly an exciting future ahead for Cherries fans.
