Charlton Athletic could be set to receive a windfall of over £1million if former striker Karlan Grant is sold by Huddersfield Town in January, according to reports from London News Online.
Grant was sold to the Terriers during the January transfer window for around £2million but is suspected that the Addicks inserted a sell-on clause within the deal – likely to be around ten per cent according to the reports.
The Sun reported on Wednesday that Premier League sides including Bournemouth and Wolves were ready to move for the marksman when the winter window opens in just over a month’s time.
Who is the better striker?
Grant has already scored nine goals for Danny Cowley’s men this season, despite the club experiencing a slow start to life back in the Championship.
Charlton on the other hand have taken no time to adapt to life in the second tier following their promotion from League One last season.
Lee Bowyer and co currently sit in tenth place with 15 games played, sat just three points behind the play-off places heading into their weekend clash with Millwall.
This looks like great news on paper but, let’s be honest, the chances of this money being pumped back into the squad are extremely slim.
Roland Duchatelet has never been particularly generous with his first-team investment and Charlton fans will know that better than anybody.
It is a shame because with Bowyer at the helm and the spirit within the side, with a bit more of a cash injection they could seriously challenge for promotion.
