Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell is keeping tight-lipped over potential Russian investment at Dean Court.

Reports claim vice-chairman Jeff Mostyn and director Steve Sly are contemplating selling their combined 50% share in the club to investment consortium Energy Consulting Group.

But Mitchell, who owns a 25% share, is not going into details.

"We are always looking for investment in the club and have considered some options which could be available to us," he told the Echo.

"It is my job to look for investment and I think I have found it, but I don't want to say any more than that at the moment because I don't want to look foolish and I don't want to frighten away investors by saying anything."
