Huw Jenkins is ready to buy troubled Charlton Athletic and thus end the ownership of Tahnoon Nimer and Matt Southall, as per The Sun.
The ex-Swansea City supremo will reportedly take over this week once the English Football League approve the deal, which should be a formality. Charlton’s East Street Investments revealed that they have found a buyer and it could not come soon enough after a reign that saw a bitter dispute between Nimer and former agent Southall.
As per The Sun, Jenkins has stepped in with the London club out of funds and facing a need for money before the wages are due by the end of the month. The would-be owner will inject cash and has also inherited a deal that would see him buy the land from previous owner Roland Duchatelet at a later date.
Jenkins has been looking for a new project since and has looked at the Addicks for weeks. He stalled over fears of no fans being able to attend for months and was also concerned that the season would end with relegation.
Lee Bowyer’s team sit in the bottom three of the Championship at the moment on 39 points but they are just two points away from escaping the relegation zone with nine games potentially still left to play, providing that the league does not finish early as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Do you think Charlton will survive relegation?
Nevertheless, despite the season still being on hold, this news should at least give Charlton fans something to cheer.
