Crystal Palace midfielder Jonny Williams a loan target for Charlton Athletic


Charlton Athletic could be set to sign Jonny Williams – with the Crystal Palace attacking midfielder in the Valley crowd for today’s  win over Walsall.

Addicks manager Lee Bowyer revealed post-match that one of his loan targets had attended the game.

Bowyer said: “There are two we’re really close to so, yeah. Hopefully we get them both in before Sunderland. That’s the plan.

“I’m not going to sit here and obviously tell you who but there are a couple of people that we’re looking at. One was here today, I believe, and watching the game.”

Williams, 25, has had loan spells at Ipswich Town, Nottingham Forest, Milton Keynes and Sunderland.

Sullay Kaikai made the temporary switch from Palace to Charlton last season, spending the second half of the League One campaign in SE7.
