Prospective Plymouth buyer James Brent is targeting to pay staff their overdue wages and keep the club in the Football League.

Brent, founder and chairman of Akkeron Group, has been honest about his limited knowledge of football but is keen to implement his business plans should his takeover go through.

He told the Western Morning News: "If we do facilitate a rescue, our short-term aspiration is to start paying our staff and to be putting in the appropriate corporate structure, but also integrate the club with our existing businesses, to market it well and to drive up short-term revenues.

"We have to clearly address the performance on the pitch and avoid relegation, which is obviously the most realistic aspiration for this year.

"I am not a football expert, but all the advice I'm given suggests this could and should naturally, if strongly-run, be a Championship club.

"As far as a board is concerned, we've had some discussions with Peter Ridsdale but no detailed discussions with anyone other than Peter. He has clearly played an important part in keeping the club alive, and I would be delighted to have further discussions with him at an appropriate stage."
