Charlton Athletic set for seven-figure sum if Championship hotshot makes Premier League move in January

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Charlton Athletic owner Roland Duchatelet could be banking a seven-figure sum next month if Karlan Grant leaves Huddersfield Town.

The South London club inserted a sell-on clause in the deal when they sold the striker to the Terriers for £2million last January.

Grant is reportedly attracting interest from AFC Bournemouth and Wolves. Crystal Palace sporting director Dougie Freedman has also watched the 22-year-old.

Grant has rattled in nine goals in 15 Championship matches this season.

And the Greenwich-born forward netted four times for the Terriers in the second half of the Premier League, an impressive return when you consider their woeful whimper out of the top flight.

It seems unlikely that any money heading Charlton’s way – which is likely to be in excess of 10 per cent – will be given to Charlton boss Lee Bowyer to spend on his squad.
