Charlton Athletic have had interest in their players at start of January window

Charlton manager Dean Holden has confirmed they have received approaches for some of their players.

We reported earlier in the week that goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray could be an early mover and there also appears to be interest in winger Charlie Kirk, which looks more likely to be a loan.

Kirk did make a temporary move to Blackpool last season while Neil Critchley was in charge, spending the second half of the campaign at Bloomfield Road.

Jake Forster-Caskey signed for Stevenage earlier this week.

Holden told the South London Press: “All I would say at this stage is that there has been some enquiries for some of our players – most from agents, with players coming in and coming out. We’ve spoken directly to clubs as well about certain players maybe moving on.

“I won’t comment individually on any players but there has been some interest in our players, yeah.”

Holden also did not want to divulge if Alex Gilbey would be recalled from his loan at Stevenage.

We reported recently that Charlton inserted an option to cut short his stay with the League Two promotion chasers.

Holden said: “I won’t comment at all. It’s really important to me, coming into the job, that we do our work on the quiet because every time a comment comes out publicly it drives rumours and interest. We don’t want to alert any clubs either, in terms of what we’re doing in terms of players coming in or out.”
