Charlton Athletic announce takeover talks are taking place with Belgian millionaire Rolan Duchatelet
Addicks chairman Michael Slater confirmed that 'very constructive discussions' had taken place over a proposed £14m takeover
Saturday 28 December 2013
Charlton have announced that takeover talks are currently taking place with Belgian millionaire and political activist Roland Duchatelet.
The takeover follows the collapse last month of a proposed purchase of the club by American sports franchise owner Josh Harris after talks had reached an advanced stage.
The 67-year-old Duchatelet is reported to have paid a cut-price £14million for the London club.
Addicks chairman Michael Slater confirmed the news on the club's official website http://www.cafc.co.uk on Saturday, stating: "Very constructive discussions are ongoing which we hope to conclude soon."
The Sky Bet Championship club are currently sixth bottom - just four points off the relegation zone after recording one win in their last six league matches ahead of Sunday's clash with Sheffield Wednesday.
