A more solid than normal ‘takeover story’ in today’s South London Press.
“Charlton are in advanced talks with a multi-million pound British property company over the sale of the Championship club. Sources close to the Addicks have revealed that an investment company is on the verge of completing the deal to take total control of the Championship club.” (more)
The Property Company is a red flag, but it sounds more of a trust than a developer, and the mention of Powell and transfer kitty in the same breath are very positive.
Of course we have been here before and I think they’ve had more due diligence than rain down at The Valley this year, however what interests me is that it is once again the SLP that have been ‘given’ the story although I’m unsure to the relevance of the piece about The Valley as most people that read the SLP would know that.
The second half of the article does have a look of it being taken directly from a document that the SLP may well have been given, so perhaps a little more than just a sniff of a rumour. Buckle up.
