Footage has emerged of departing Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor training with London-based non-league club SE Dons, of YouTube fame, which has caused quite a stir among fans of the Addicks.
Charlton got their Championship campaign back underway with a vital win against relegation rivals Hull City yesterday, with Jason Pearce’s goal helping them climb out of the bottom three.
Lee Bowyer’s side still have a relegation fight on their hands and know they cannot turn to Taylor, who is out-of-contract at the end of the month and unwilling to risk an injury that could hamper a big move this summer.

The 30-year-old has been Charlton’s star striker since joining the club in 2018, scoring 36 goals and firing them up to the Championship last term.
Taylor has already been linked with a string of potential suitors, including the likes of West Bromwich Albion and Brentford, but for the time being, his future remains unclear.
Footage emerged yesterday showing the forward training with SE Dons, the Orpington & Bromley District Sunday Football League side that have risen to YouTube fame.

Pleasure to watch proper professionals today play for the club and the shirt. Rather than take the money and then selfishly refuse to play. IT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
