Charlton Athletic have agreed to extend Ben Dempsey’s loan spell at non-league side Woking, as per a report from non-leaguedaily.com.
The Addicks may well be looking to add further to their squad in the coming weeks after a recent blip of form but Lee Bowyer has already admitted it will be tough given the wage cap imposed in League One.
On the flipside, meanwhile, it would appear that Charlton are happy for Dempsey to stay in Surrey with Woking, having originally sanctioned a move for him back in October, after spending time with them last season as well.
That in mind, he’s now set to extend his stay with the Cards further until the end of the season and will be looking to help them finish as high as possible with them currently sat in mid-table in the National League.
It’s obvious that this is an agreement that suits all parties given that it’s been in existence for a while now.
Dempsey is obviously enjoying his time at Woking and the club is obviously happy to keep him on, whilst Charlton will be watching how he does between now and the end of the season.
Alfie Doughty is an example of what can be achieved after a loan in non-league and Dempsey would like to emulate that for sure – though Charlton fans will obviously want to avoid the exiting for the Championship bit.
