Charlton Athletic have made a stunning start to their Championship campaign since achieving promotion, with Lee Bowyer’s men being one of the division’s surprise packages thus far.
Much of their form has been down to the performances of most of their cummer incomings this term, with the likes of striker Macauley Bonne and midfielder Conor Gallagher having made considerable impacts since arriving at the Valley.
Given the strong starts that several players have made to their Charlton careers, it is perhaps unsurprising that a small volume of players have been left without any real chance of getting regular game time so far, meaning that the possibility of their being departures from the club during the January window has been heightened.
Do you think Charlton will sell any players in January?
Here, we take a look at TWO Charlton players that Lee Bowyer will surely be looking to offload come the winter window….
One player that Bowyer will surely be seeking to get off the wage bill is former MK Dons striker Chuks Aneke, who has failed to really make a convincing impression on the Addicks boss since arriving at the Valley this summer.
Add to the fact that competition for places up front is considerably high at this present moment, Aneke could once again be seeking to find a new club in the not too distant future if he doesn’t buck his ideas up.
One other player who could potentially be heading for the exit door in January, is Charlton academy graduate George Lapslie, with the young midfielder failing to make the breakthrough at his boyhood club since returning from his loan spell with non-league Chelmsford City in 2018.
The 22-year-old have only played just over 40 times for the Addicks since progressing through the youth ranks, and given the fact he has only played four times this term, his days at the Valley look numbered.
Lapslie is at the age where he needs to be playing regularly to continue his development as a midfielder and a move away would surely be something that he will be considering, as at present it looks like the best solution for all parties.
