Former Birmingham owners to turn to Charlton if West Ham bid fails

Charlton Athletic are in the sights of Birmingham City's former owners.

The Mirror says David Sullivan and the Gold brothers are plotting to take over Charlton should they fail to negotiate an attractive deal for West Ham.

Sullivan and David and Ralph Gold all want to own another football club after selling Birmingham City to Carson Yeung.

They have an emotional attachment to the Upton Park club after growing up in the area.

But Sullivan and the Golds are seriously worried about the club's huge debts of around £100million.
