Charlton Athletic keen on offering player new deal



Charlton Athletic have begun negotiations with midfielder Alfie Doughty over a new contract at the club, according to London News Online.

The 20-year-old has had his breakthrough season this term at the south London club, playing a key part for Lee Bowyer’s side during their notable injury crisis.

With a lack of first-team players available, Doughty was recalled from his loan spell at Bromley to help make up the numbers.

He surprised everyone with his performances in a Charlton shirt on his return, and showed that he was more than capable of playing in the Championship.

As a result, the club are keen to offer the youngster a new deal, with London News Online reporting that the 20-year-old has just to run 16 months left on his current contract.

Fulham also showed interest in Doughty during the recent January transfer window, which has prompted Charlton to act.

Doughty has made a total of 16 appearances for the Addicks this season, contributing with one goal and three assists.

During his time at the club, he has shown his versatility, turning out in a number of positions.

It has also been reported that the club are also keen on offering improved deals to both Naby Sarr and Dillon Phillips.

The Verdict

Doughty has earned a new deal at the club with his performances in a Charlton shirt this season, and the Addicks will want to get it over the line as soon as they can so no outside interest for the youngster comes their way this summer.

The 20-year-old has come through the club’s academy, and will be used to familiar surroundings.

His most memorable moment so far in a Charlton shirt was his 90th minute winner against Bristol City on Boxing Day.
