Richard Cawley of the SLP tweets that the deal for Chris Wilder to come to Charlton has hit a snag. 'Whether that will be rectified, time will tell.'
Richard Cawley has added another tweet stating that Charlton were confident of announcing Wilder yesterday. 'Rumblings are not good today.'
Other comment suggests that it could be a big issue and getting the deal over the line will need a major concession from someone.
It appears that contract length may have been an issue. It has also been suggested that the club refused to put in writing certain key assurances such as control, buying etc. If they were in writing, they could subsequently be the basis for a constructive dismissal claim.
It also appears that Sheffield United may now have come into the mix. The Blades are also interested in Charlton target George Moncur.
The club has now confirmed that the deal is off: Failure
I am disappointed that this deal did not go through. It would not have dealt with the criticisms of the regime, but it would have been a step in the right direction.
