Charlton Athletic will only do ONE deal before transfer deadline

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Lee Bowyer has confirmed that Charlton Athletic will only make one more signing before tonight’s deadline – a loan striker to replace Karlan Grant.

Grant was sold to Huddersfield Town yesterday in a deal reported to be worth £2million.

Addicks fans had hoped that Bowyer would be able to use some of that money to bolster his squad, who are well-placed for at least a League One play-off spot.

But instead it will be one in and one out for Charlton.

Grant scored 14 goals in the season and will be a big miss, especially with top-scorer Lyle Taylor still suspended for two matches.

Bowyer said: “We’re in a good position at the moment for the striker we want.

“Obviously he won’t be in to train today, which is disappointing. We’d hoped that would happen yesterday.

“Today we hear ‘yes’ or ‘no’. But I think we’ve got a good chance.

“And then that is us [done]. That’s all we’re trying to do, just replace Karlan.”
