Charlton takeover imminent

A takeover of Charlton, most likely by the Australian consortium is imminent reveals VOTV editor Rick Everitt: Deal near

As revealed in the fanzine, this involves businessman Andrew Muir, former owner of the Good Guys retail chain who has considerable funds at his disposal.

The Rickster reveals, 'Voice of The Valley has been told by multiple independent and well-placed sources that due diligence on a potential sale has been taking place – and today that a deal could even go through before the end of the next week.'

VOTV understands that the deal would now include the acquisition of Charlton Athletic Holdings Limited, the entity that owns The Valley and Sparrows Lane, as well the football club itself. Suggestions to the contrary were a source of concern to some fans following the initial report.

Details remain sketchy and the timeline changeable, but the deal has been brokered by the Everton director Keith Harris.

My view is that a Chinese takeover is unlikely at this time as the Communist Party Congress is still in session in Beijing and there will be no green light for new takeovers until its business is completed.

Charlton would become the first Australian owned club in the UK. Tinnies all round!

Louis Mendez has tweeted, 'We've been here before. Everyone remain calm.' Well, yes, but it is difficult to remain calm.

  2. Fair dues and will not get carried away and still very surprised that this has been announced before if any signed agreement.
    Also Louis and Charlton Live well said and can now put an argument to bed.
    Charlton matters only and Rick Everitt who I know from my very proud time as a Valley Party Candidate, who did my little bit to get CAFC home.
