EASTBOURNE want Russian champion Denis Gizatullin in their side for June 20 - or they will turn their attentions elsewhere.

Gizatullin is being lined up to replace the injured David Norris, but the Eagles have targeted another overseas signing if required.

Promoter Bob Dugard said: “I've given Denis an ultimatum. We need to know in the next two or three days whether he can ride on the 20th.”
