Charlton Athletic manager Dean Holden is set for contract talks this weekend.
Addicks owner Thomas Sandgaard told our paper recently that he wanted to secure the 43-year-old on longer terms.
Holden’s current deal runs out at the end of the season but the former Bristol City boss is keen to remain at the Valley helm. US-based Sandgaard was back in his native Denmark for the funeral of his mother yesterday. She passed away last Thursday.
“I’m sure over the weekend talks will begin,” Holden told the South London Press. “We have not yet started the talks on that.
“Thomas has indicated to my representative that he wants to get a deal sorted quickly.
“That would ideally be done face to face but with him being in Denmark, that’s probably going to happen at the weekend.”
American businessman Marc Spiegel is keen on investing in the League One club. Sandgaard pulled the plug on takeover talks with a group led by former Sunderland co-owner Charlie Methven.
Football agent Jon Smith, who brokers buyouts, is assisting Spiegel and is thought to have pushed for the appointment of Peter Storrie as chief executive.
