Michael Eisner and his son, Eric, have been in England since the start of the week as the Tornante investment group closed in on the takeover.

Meanwhile, Tornante's president and chief operating officer, Andy Redman, accompanied Mark Catlin to Saturday's friendly at Crawley.

Now the deal is set to come to fruition tomorrow, bringing the curtain down on community ownership at Fratton Park.
