Charlton boss admits that Arsenal striker – linked with Valley loan – is out of reach

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer has ruled out a loan move for Eddie Nketiah.

The Arsenal striker had been on their wanted list but Bristol City were understood to be ready to pay a loan fee and the full wages of the Lewisham-born 20-year-old.

Nketiah scored a late winner for the Gunners as they beat Bayern Munich  in their Champions Cup opener in Los Angeles this week.

“It is looking difficult,” said Bowyer. 

“He is in the first-team and doing well in the first-team. I can’t see them letting him out on loan.”
