Charlton owner Roland Duchatelet: Talks over Lee Bowyer’s contract will continue next week

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Charlton Athletic owner Roland Duchatelet says contract talks will continue next week with manager Lee Bowyer.

Bowyer is out of contract at the end of June – unless he agrees to terms on a previous deal which was put together when the Addicks were still a League One club.

Bowyer led Charlton to promotion via the League One play-offs at the end of last month.

West Brom and Derby County have both been linked with the Charlton chief.

Duchatelet told Charlton’s official website: “The club first spoke to Lee Bowyer about a contract extension earlier in the season.

“There is a trigger in his contract for a contract extension, which we exercised in May, and he needs to agree to this for his contract to be extended as per the current agreement.

“He has done a fantastic job and therefore talks about improving Lee’s contract are scheduled for next week. Both the club and Lee want him to be the Charlton Athletic manager next season.”
