Charlton Athletic

1 winner and 1 loser if Charlton accept player-swap offer from Championship rivals



News emerged on Wednesday that Bristol City had offered Charlton Athletic attacking-midfielder Kasey Palmer in a bid to sign striker Lyle Taylor.

The report from Football Insider suggests that Taylor is high on Lee Johnson’s January wishlist as he looks to bolster his thin striking options and, with Palmer falling out of his plans in recent weeks, is willing to offer the 23-year-old has part of the deal.

Palmer only arrived permanently at Bristol City during the summer transfer window and after starting regulary over the opening months of the campaign, has played just twice in the club’s last ten league matches, failing to make the squad for five of them.

But if the Addicks go through with the deal, who would be the big winners and losers at Charlton?

Macauley Bonne

The summer signing from non-league would almost definitely benefit the most from this deal going through.

With Taylor leaving, he would be all set to become the main man in attack and with someone as creative as Palmer joining to provide for him, he would stand to a lot more scoring chances.

Who is this Charlton flop?

A strong end to the season and Bonne could see himself in line for a move to the upper ends of the division or even the Premier League.

Albie Morgan

Having returned from his loan with Ebbsfleet United early, Morgan will have been hopeful of pushing on in the Charlton first-team.

And, so far, that has been the case. The 19 year-old has racked up 11 appearances in the league and after Connor Gallagher’s departure he will have been hopeful of picking up many more.

However, if Palmer were to arrive and Taylor to leave, it would make his position much harder to hold onto. Palmer’s attacking prowess and Championship experience will almost certainly see him leap above Morgan in the pecking order at The Valley.
