Mr Campbell met the Bairns directors at the monthly boardroom meeting and took in the 0-0 draw with East Fife.
Bairns interim chairman Lex Miller confirmed the progressive talks yesterday and said: “Mr Campbell and the board met on Thursday and had a positive meeting. Following the talks, negotiations are moving towards the next stage and are being dealt with by our lawyers. Talks will continue to be ongoing.”
Mr Campbell was named the Bairns’ preferred bidder in July after seeing off two other offers for the club, but hopes of a deal being sealed for a takeover by the end of the summer transfer window failed to materialise.
Previously this year the businessman had been close to taking over at Sunderland before turning his attention to the Bairns. After being named preferred bidder by the club he met fans in two open meetings where he discussed plans for a hotel, his coffee company and expansion plans to the Stadium and re-instating the club Academy.
