The sale of Sky Bet League One club Charlton Athletic is expected to be completed within the next few weeks according to News Shopper.

The club’s takeover saga has rumbled on for some time with unpopular owner Roland Duchatelet having first expressed his hopes to end his ownership of The Addicks well over 12 months ago.

It has now been reported that Duchatelet is confident that a deal can be completed with prospective new owners within weeks after agreeing a fee for the club with two interested parties.

Fans of Charlton Athletic were hoping that the proposed takeover of the club would be completed last month to allow manager Karl Robinson to add some permanent signings to his promotion-chasing squad. In the end, The Addicks boss had to use the loan market to freshen up the group with current owner Duchatelet unwilling to invest further giving the likeliness of the club soon operating under new owners.

Charlton Athletic are in a good position in the league table with just 13 matches left to play. The Addicks sit in seventh but do have games in hand over the three sides directly above them in Sky Bet League One.

It is understood that the sale of the club is now in the hands of lawyers who will finalise a deal to purchase the South East Londoners.
