Charlton Athletic boss provides update on former Swindon and Manchester United striker


Lee Bowyer says that there has been no fresh interest in Nicky Ajose – with the striker playing for an ultra-young Charlton Athletic side in the League Cup on Tuesday.

The Addicks boss revealed before the campaign started that the former Swindon Town and Manchester United forward might have the possibility of a move abroad.

But Ajose, one of the higher earners at the club, is still on the books.

Bowyer – when asked about if there was anything on the go for the striker – said: “At the moment, no. Not that I’m aware of.

“Nicky’s situation abroad has gone, because it was more of a permanent thing.

“No-one has come in for any of our players. If they do we’ll think about it and go from there.

“Our squad is really thin at the moment and we can’t be chucking away too many people. When we start getting players back from injury then things might change – but the window could also be closed by then.”
