Luton Town are preparing a bid for Charlton Athletic winger Alfie Doughty, according to reputable journalist Alan Nixon.
The Hatters pulled off a fantastic turnaround following the season’s resumption and survived the drop down to League One under Nathan Jones.
Charlton, meanwhile, were relegated on the final day of the season after a 4-0 defeat to Leeds United at Elland Road, with the club potentially set to lose some of their key players ahead of next season.
The ultimate Charlton Athletic end of season quiz – Can you get 14/14?
Doughty’s contract at the Valley expires next summer and is reportedly unlikely to sign a new deal due to the uncertainty around the ownership of the club.
The 20-year-old was a bright player under Bowyer this season, scoring two goals and chipping in with three assists in 29 Championship appearances for the Addicks.
Here, though, we take a look at Charlton fans’ reactions to Doughty potentially joining Luton Town…
No way should Charlton Athletic ever be losing a player to Luton

Don’t worry about losing a player we are about to lose our club!

Alfie Doughty to Luton would be a strange move. No disrespect to Luton at all and totally get they are league above us now. But surely facilities and size of club comes into play. I was gping to say prospects but then realised we dont have any 😂 #cafc

On the flip side. Proven to develop players into premier league quality players. Would not be the worst move for a 20 year old

Alfie Doughty will have the pick of his clubs, Luton town won’t be his destination! Just Nathan Jones trying his luck & taking advantage of our situation! That statement farnell put out less than 24 hours ago could come back to bite him ASAP though #cafc

Can't blame any player going TBF. If there's was a chance I won't be getting paid, I'd be off too. Players have bills too. At the moment any team is a better proposition than us. 😔

Makes a lot of sense , both could lose their current first choices.

You know it’s bad when you’re losing players to Luton…
