The board of Swindon Town has released a statement reassuring fans that "short-term issues" at the club will be resolved in the near future.
The statement, released through the club's website, said: "The board expects to complete the sale of the club next week and are confident that the new owners share the same ambitions as Paolo and his team.
"The decisions made over the course of the last few days have not been made lightly, and in the case of the decision to sell Matt Ritchie, have been done in conjunction with the new owners.
"We look forward to the swift resolution of these short term issues, Football League approval of the new owners and hopefully a win against Crawley."
Di Canio will take charge of Swindon this evening, when they take on Crawley in League One.
