Pompey’s new owner has pledged to make the funds available to build a 'strong' Portsmouth and said it was a 'privilege' to be taking the helm at Fratton Park.

In his first full interview about the deal which sees his investment group Al Fahim Asia Associates takeover from present owner Alexandre Gaydamak once a period of due diligence is completed, Dr Sulaiham al-Fahim hus begun to flesh out his ambitions for the club.

He told arabianbusiness.com: 'Everything I have seen makes me sure that we can build a great football club in the years to come. Portsmouth has incredible history, and its fans are some of the most loyal in the world of football.'

And he made it clear he wanted to find out what fans thought about how their club should develop under his ownership.

'I look forward not just to working with them, but listening to their views on how they want to take the club forward. I am the investor, but this is their club and their community -  and it is a privilege to be taking charge.'

What’s your view on the takeover? How high can Dr Al Fahim lift the Blues? Tell us on the forum.
