A statement issued by Charlton in response to questions raised at the recent fans' forum aims to suggest that the repayment terms of the £7m ex-director loans and even the effect of the charges over The Valley and Sparrows Lane that secure them are potentially open to challenge. Rick Everitt looks at the club's latest claims.
Voice of The Valley has been told that a post-Wembley change in the terms of the deal for the sale of Charlton previously agreed between owner Roland Duchatelet and the Australian-led consortium led to the public spat over outstanding loans to three former club directors.
The information emanating from the Aussie camp directly conflicts with previously minuted public statements by Duchatelet's point man Lieven De Turck.
Three former Charlton directors have issued a statement via Voice of The Valley in response to recent reports about their outstanding loans to the club. Derek Chappell was chair of the former Charlton Athletic PLC from 2008-09 and served as a director of the football club from 2005-2010, David Sumners was on the board from 1995-2010, and Bob Whitehand was a director from 1997-2010 and is a former PLC vice chair. The trio make clear that their position on their loans, which total £2.65m, is unambiguous but add that they have no power or desire to block a takeover of the club. Read the full statement here.
