Charlton have ‘no intention’ of selling striker Macauley Bonne in January amid transfer links with a number of clubs, a source close to the player has exclusively confirmed to Football League World Chief Editor Sam Rourke.
Bonne is being monitored by numerous clubs which include the likes of Newcastle, Leicester and Fulham – according to talkSPORT – but FLW have been informed that the Addicks have no desire to offload the 24-year-old.
The frontman only joined Charlton over the summer when he sealed his move from National League side Leyton Orient, but his impressive form in the Addicks’ attack has now appeared to alert some potential suitors to his abilities.
Bonne has netted six goals in his 12 appearances for Lee Bowyer’s injury-hit side, with his strong start to life at The Valley helping to fill the goalscoring void left by star striker Lyle Taylor following his lengthy injury lay-off.
Charlton are currently languishing at 17th in the Championship table – with the club’s injury troubles affecting their league form – and this means they will be keen to improve rather than weaken their squad in the January transfer window.
This is something which may have informed their desire to keep hold of Bonne, who netted 23 goals in 46 appearances for Leyton Orient last season, and it now seems unlikely the attacker will depart South London next month.
