Details of the deal struck between Dick Knight, the leader of the consortium trying to take over Brighton & Hove Albion, the club's co-owners, Bill Archer and Greg Stanley, and the mediators appointed by the Football Association will be made public at a news conference in London tomorrow.

Knight is expected to be named as the club's new chairman and it is also expected that Archer's proposed groundshare with Gillingham will be abandoned. It is understood Archer will remain on the board of directors with an interest in the new stadium project.

Stanley will still be a shareholder but will not be on the board, and the chief executive David Bellotti will leave the club. The Knight consortium has plans for Brighton to play home matches at Hove greyhound stadium until a new permanent football home is built.
