Charlton Athletic

Nottingham Forest player hoping club make new transfer agreement



Nottingham Forest loanee Jamie Ward has hopes of extending his stay at The Valley come January.

According to the South London Press, the 32-year-old is hoping an agreement can be reached between Charlton Athletic and his parent club to extend his time in London.

The forward has only made four League One appearances this term as well as a run-out in the Checkatrade Trophy earlier in the month.

His latest appearance was in the 2-0 win over Barnsley at the weekend where he set-up Karlan Grant for the Addicks’ opening goal.

With injury forcing Ward to miss the last few weeks, Saturday was his first start since mid-September.

Fit and ready to contribute, the Forest loanee is hopeful he will be granted a more extended stay at The Valley come January when his temporary deal is set to expire.

“I’d enjoy staying until the end of the season and hopefully longer. As long as everything is right for everyone” Ward told the South London Press.

“But the most important thing is trying to get this club promoted and helping them in the next few months. 

“At the moment I’ve got until January but hopefully it can get extended, and I can help until the end of the season. That’s not up to me, that’s in the club’s hands.

“All I can do is focus on trying to do well until January. Whatever happens then is totally down to the club.

“It’s just nice to be wanted again.”

The Verdict

It is amazing how that wanted feeling can affect a player and allow them to produce their best.

Jamie Ward was out of favour at Nottingham Forest, and when he did play, you could tell that he wasn’t really at his best.

On loan at Charlton, meanwhile, he is in and around the team on a weekly basis, despite missing a few weeks through injury, it has given the forward a new lease of life.

He might be 32-years-old now, but Ward is showing he still has what it takes to influence matches.

That is benefitting both him and the team.

If an extension can be granted in January, it would be the best thing for Ward and indeed Charlton.
