Richard Cawley reports 'ESI want to bring in Dave Jones to be in charge of the football side of the club. He would be above director of football Steve Gallen and Lee Bowyer and have final say on transfers.'
Cawley also states, 'Also worth adding that Charlton still in talks with the EFL to try and see if the Washington and Gilbey deals can go through this week.'
Rick Everitt of VOTV has tweeted: 'Chris Farnell may have overplayed his hand with Dave Jones. Looks as if his first role was to sell players, e.g. Dillon Phillips. ESI2 want him in, he’s due to start this week, but there is now pushback from within CAFC.'
