What club is Jonathan Obika playing for now?

Beadle is said to be a Charlton fan and has turned out for England at both the under-15 and under-18 levels.

The Verdict 

It is a shame for any Football League club to lose one of their most talented youngsters to a Premier League side, however at least Charlton can rest easy knowing that they did everything they could to keep him.

Brighton are a good club for Beadle to go too and the Seagulls will provide him with the right environment for him to continue his development.

On the flip side the Addicks can be pleased that they have managed to hold onto the likes of Karoy Anderson, Deji Elerewe and Mason Burstow, with the trio having all signed new contracts.

This shows the club’s commitment to continuing their target of producing players that can make the step up to the first team in the years ahead, which is something that Charlton has been built on for quite some time now.
