Proof of funds have been submitted to the English Football League according to Charlton owner Tahnoon Nimer.

The club were hit with a registration embargo in January after ‘proof of funds’ documents were not submitted before the EFL’s deadline.

With the Syrian businessman failing to prove his wealth, it caused confusion as to who owned the club with former and much maligned owner Roland Duchatelet being tipped to consequently return in charge.

Nimer, speaking to Sky Sports however, revealed he has been in touch with he EFL.  

"We are discussing already with the EFL [and] submit five or six documents from different banks, which prove where the funds come and the different amounts inside,” he said.

"The EFL will take time but I'm not going to wait for the EFL, I'm going to support the club as much as a I can now."

The news comes amid boardroom chaos at The Valley as a feud with then-Chairman Matt Southall resulted in Nimer freezing any cash investment into the club.

Following a meeting last Thursday, Nimer removed Southall from his post along with Director Jonathan Heller for allegedly miss-using club money to fund their lifestyles, reportedly to the tune of £1.8million. Allegations Southall denied.

With Southall and Heller replaced on the club’s board by Claudiu Florica and Marian Mihail, Nimer assured fans he was now going to invest in the club and stave them from financial ruin which had been threatened whilst he wrote to staff assuring their positons were safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Matt Southall is no longer the chairman of Charlton Athletic, he has been removed and my authority as a major shareholder allows me to do this," he said.

"He lied to the people actually when he said the club is safe until December.

“Now we are going to inject the money because we found that there is no money in the club."

"The plan is quite simple; to get Charlton Athletic a financial footing right now to get them back to the Premier League.”
