Charlton set for Dubai buyout

Zabeel Investments is the company looking at the Addicks, the same company who were recently linked with buying Premiership side Newcastle.

A statement from Charlton read: “The board of Charlton Athletic plc announces that it has received an indicative cash offer from Zabeel Investments, a Dubai-based diversified investment company.

“The indicative offer is subject to a number of preconditions, including due diligence, however, it is at a level at which, should the offer be made formally to shareholders, the board would recommend shareholders to accept it.

“There is, however, no certainty that a formal offer will be made nor as to the terms of any offer.”
