Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet has agreed a takeover fee with two parties.

Duchatelet has been trying to sell the club for over a year, and his £50m asking price was a stumbling block.

However, Charlton director Richard Murray revealed a takeover deal is in advanced stages with lawyers.

He said: “I said in January that negotiations with two parties on the takeover were continuing well and I hoped a deal would be concluded in February of this year.

“Although the takeover has not yet been completed, the good news is the terms of the deal, including the price, have now been agreed between the parties and we are now just waiting for their respective lawyers to finalise the sale and purchase agreement. 

"You can never tell how long lawyers will take but I’ve been informed it should be within the next few weeks. Once the new ownership has been legally achieved, we will inform everyone via our official channels.”
