Some Charlton Athletic fans have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by Sky Sports’ Ben Ransom which shares the alleged news that Laurence Bassini has spoken to Sky Sports to confirm that “he is pulling out” of his Addicks takeover attempt. 

Sky Sports recently published an article which shared some news that was originally announced via the Addicks’ official website last Friday, confirming that Charlton’s majority shareholder Tahnoon Nimer has agreed on a deal to sell his shares in East Street Investments, the group that completed a takeover of the Addicks back in January.

This report from Sky Sports also confirmed Bassini’s interest in taking the club over. However, now, Ransom has claimed that Bassini has told Sky Sports that he will not continue with his pursuit of a Charlton takeover and this claim has gone down well with some Addicks fans. Read the positive reactions of some Charlton supporters to this alleged news in the tweets below.

To kick off this quiz on 2019/20 Championship goalkeepers, can you name which goalkeeper has kept the highest number of clean sheets in the Championship this season?

Are you happy about Ransom's claim?

YES

YES

NO

NO

What do we think?

Bassini is the former owner of Watford and during his time as owner of the Hornets, he was accused of “financial impropriety”. With that in mind, it may not come as a surprise that these Charlton fans are happy about this claim that he has pulled out of taking their club over.
