Charlton boss Lee Bowyer: If takeover of the club was imminent I’d expect to have heard something from Roland Duchatelet

Lee Bowyer says he has yet to hear anything from Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet that suggests a sale of the club is imminent.

Reports over the last few days have indicated that an Australian consortium could complete their purchase of the Addicks as early as next week, but Bowyer says he’s been kept in the dark by Belgian tycoon Duchatelet with regards to the end of his tenure in South London.

“I’ve not heard anything from the owner regarding it so until then I don’t think it’s going happen,” said Bowyer.

“Otherwise I’d had heard something. But we’ll see.

“The takeover talk, I’ll tell you exactly what I told you in March. I had three games in March, don’t forget, when I took over and I’m still here nearly a year on.

“If it happens, it happens. I’m not going to get drawn into anything until it actually does because I’ve heard it a lot of times now.”
