Charlton takeover talks stall

Share/Save

Talks for a takeover of Charlton Athletic by an Australian football consortium have stalled, but may yet be revived.   Unpopular Belgian owner Roland Duchatelet is willing to consider offers.

The consortium were prepared to pay £25m, a substantial sum for a League One club, but had difficulty in raising the money.   They are now looking at alternative ways of securing the required funds.
