Sixers owner Josh Harris appears ready to purchase another team.

Harris is in detailed talks to purchase English football club Charlton, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The team is currently a member of the Football League Championship, one tier below the English Premier League.

Harris, according the Mail, made a bid on Charlton after visiting for a home game against Leeds earlier in November. The Mail pegs Chartlon's worth at 43 million pounds, which equates to roughly $70.25 million.

Harris purchased the Sixers in 2011 for $278 million. The franchise is now valued at $418 million, according to Forbes.

In August, Harris' group acquired its second franchise, buying the New Jersey Devils, the Prudential Center and assuming the $230 million debt of former owner Jeff Vanderbeek.
