The managing director of Dundee FC has said the club expects to appoint a “development partner” for its ambitious plans for a new stadium in the next few weeks.
Writing in the programme for Wednesday’s night’s match against Hibs, Mr Nelms said plans for the proposed development are progressing.
The Dark Dark Blues want to move from their Dens Park home to a purpose-built 15,000 capacity stadium on land adjacent to Camperdown Park.
The development also includes plans for housing, a hotel, nursery and even a crematorium, which the club says are necessary alternative streams of revenue.
Mr Nelms said: “The stadium development is ticking along in the background with us having several meetings on the various features to make sure we deliver the best project we can.
“An upcoming milestone will see us appoint a development partner for the entire project.
“After a vetting process we have narrowed the list down to two and will considering the final proposals over the next few weeks.
“This is a very important appointment as it will give us continuity as all of the complex components of the development start to come out of the ground.”
Earlier this week Dark Blues manager Neil McCann said he believed the new stadium would be a “massive boost” for Dundee FC.
