An Australian consortium is in talks to buy Charlton: Oz buyers
The UK chairman of the Australian Football Consortium is the chairman of construction firm Balfour Beatty.
Charlton would become a conduit for Socerroos. Charlton would become 'Australia's football club.' The price is said to be £20m.
It seems likely that this rather low price is just for the club and not the ground and training ground which would be rented out. It is believed that a ten year lease will be offered. Alternatively, the new owners might additionally have to service and pay down the debt.
It is hoped to secure a return to the Premier League in five years.
