Charlton Athletic are set to be bought out by American owners.

The Daily Mail says investment banker Josh Harris is set to become the latest American sports franchise owner to buy into English football.

The 48-year-old billionaire, who owns basketball’s Philadelphia 76ers and ice hockey team New Jersey Devils, is said to be in detailed talks to purchase Charlton. The Championship club have been linked with a number of potential takeover moves recently, including consortiums from Turkey and Russia.
