Turkish businessman Ziya Eren has completed his takever of Crawley Town.

Eren received clearance from the Football League to buy the League Two outfit yesterday and control was handed over at a board meeting today.

Eren is expected to make a statement on his plans for Crawley tomorrow but took his first decision by having a total clearout at boardroom level.

Chairman Dave Pottinger, co-owner Matt Turner, chief executive Michael Dunford and board member Ian Carter have all resigned with immediate effect.

The Argus broke the news that Eren was in advanced talks to buy Crawley in January with the deal originally expected to be completed on February 12.

Eren has attended a number of Crawley games while the transaction was being rubber-stamped by the Football League and has stated his ambition to guide Reds into the Championship within "eight to ten years".

The steel magnate already owns Turkish second division outfit Kayseri Erciyesspor.
