Danny Cowley is no longer in the running to become Charlton’s new manager, according to Alex Crook.
Charlton are on the lookout for a new manager after Lee Bowyer resigned from his role this week, shortly before the 44-year-old became Birmingham City’s new Head Coach.
Danny Cowley has been sounded out by the Addicks as the club assess their options and look for replacements for Bowyer.

But according to journalist Alex Crook, Cowley is no longer in the running to take over at the Valley.
This leaves the door wide open for Cowley to take charge at Fratton Park. Portsmouth are reportedly keen on hiring the 42-year-old, and he is said to have had talks with the League One club.
Pompey are also another League One side on the lookout for a new manager, after Kenny Jackett was relieved of his duties following their Papa John’s Trophy final defeat to Salford City at the weekend.
Cowley does look destined for Pompey, and I think it would be a really good appointment.
Cowley did an excellent job at Lincoln and led them from the National League up to League One, and in my view, he was harshly sacked by Huddersfield despite keeping them up from relegation.
He’s a great man-manager and knows how to win games in different types of ways, and I think Portsmouth would be a great fit for him and his brother Nicky.
