Fourth set of owners in a year

According to the Daily Mail, Tahnoon Nimer has sold Charlton to a consortium headed by Manchester-based businessman Paul Elliott, originally from Hammersmith in London: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8400475/Charlton-owners-agree-sell-club-Manchester-based-businessman.html

Unconfirmed social media reports suggest a price of £500,000 which is a nice profit on a £1 investment  Roland, of course, continues to own and lease out The Valley and Sparrows Lane.

Some reports suggest that Chris Farnell may have acted as an intermediary in a sale, but I have no independent confirmation of these claims.

VOTV editor Rick Everitt has commented that this could mean that Charlton will have its fourth set of owners in a year.

Peter Varney has tweeted: 'Andrew [Barclay] and I have been kept fully informed by the new CAFC owners and discussions between us are progressing.'   So the club may change hands again to the owners many of us want.
