Lee Bowyer has confirmed that Charlton will listen to offers for George Lapslie – but they will include a sell-on in any deal.
We broke the news earlier this week that the midfielder, on loan at Mansfield Town, is set to be available for free.
But the Addicks will look to insert a clause to ensure they profit if Lapslie’s career goes from strength to strength.
Charlton manager Bowyer told the South London Press: “The most important thing for George now is to get his own career kickstarted.
“He’s doing that at Mansfield and he’s out of contract with us in the summer. So yeah, we wouldn’t hold him back. That would be unfair.
“He’s at a good age now – 23 – where he needs to go and play regular football. We would never stop that from happening.
“We would always demand a sell on, like every club does. It’s only fair. This club developed him from a young age.
“He is a great lad. You can never fault him. He crawls off the pitch every game because his attitude is spot on. He comes in and trains like a proper professional and gives you everything.
“He is a pleasure to work with.”
