Charlton have dismissed speculation linking the club with a potential takeover.

Despite a series of reports over the past few days, owner Richard Murray has dismissed claims the club is about to be sold to new investors.

Murray told the club's official website: "I have made no secret of the fact that we are actively seeking new investment in the club, and that process continues. We have appointed Calimere Point, and Tim Fisher, to advise the club on potential new investment. But, while we note the recent press speculation, we'd like to make clear to supporters that no deal is imminent."

He added: "Having been involved with Charlton for so long, the future of the club is paramount in my thoughts, and the identity of any new owners or investors is of huge importance to the board and I. They have to be right for the board and the club.

"Our recent form on the pitch has been good, and obviously the better our league position, the more attractive the club becomes.

"When we are in a position to provide more information regarding possible takeovers or anything else, the club will announce it via the usual channels.

"We're committed to being as open as possible with fans, but we're not going to issue a statement every time there is some kind of rumour."
