Charlton chief executive Peter Varney insists talks with Alan Curbishley will be held this summer, following a report suggesting the Addicks boss has already been offered a deal.

Curbishley has held informal talks with the Football Association over the England job which will be available after the World Cup, leading to speculation about his future at Charlton.

The Charlton manager’s contract runs out at the end of next season but discussions will not start until the end of the current campaign.

“The position remains as we have clearly stated it on many occasions,” Varney told the club’s website www.cafc.co.uk
