Charlton Athletic have released a statement about a change of ownership at East Street Investments.
After South London Press reporter Richard Cawley revealed that Matt Southall is looking to sell his 35% stake in the club, Charlton have written an official statement confirming that a legal process has been put into place in order for ownership at ESI to change hands.
In the release, the club has described this movement as a ‘positive’ one for the club that will bring ‘much-needed stability’.
Will Charlton get promoted under Lee Bowyer?
ESI – a consortium headed by Abu Dhabi businessman Tahnoon Nimer – bought the club from former owner Roland Duchatelet in January for £1 (via BBC Sport). Just four months on, it looks like Addicks fans will have to endure another confusing era.
Many Charlton fans have slammed the club’s ‘horrendous’ update on the situation, with plenty in outrage. One supporter has tweeted that the fans ‘deserve more’ whilst another has commented ‘God help us’.

We deserve more than this pitiful statement. It tells us absolutely nothing.
