Charlton manager Karl Robinson is still hopeful of securing Crystal Palace winger Sullay Kaikai on loan – and has revealed another incoming deal is close.
The Eagles wideman was at the club’s training ground on Friday but a deal was not concluded in time for the youngster to be available for today’s 3-1 win over Walsall at The Valley.
“We got the green light on one before kick-off,” said Robinson. “I’m not going to tell you who it is. I don’t want to jinx it.
“He is 6ft 1ins or 6ft 2ins, quick and left-footed, which gives us a bit more balance. He can play as a striker, as a nine. We’ll get him to the training ground on Monday.”
When asked about if a deal was off for Kaikai, Robinson replied: “No. We’ll pick that one up tomorrow morning.
“His goals-to-game ratio is a good as anyone at this level.”
Robinson has dismissed a link to Hibernian’s Anthony Stokes.
