Charlton Athletic will demand sell-on in any January deal for midfielder

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.”

  • Why the hell are they looking to offload him then, as he’s a better and fitter player that either Foster Caskey or Gilbey, a lot faster, can go from end to end and a lot younger with his future ahead of him!
    Caskey and Gilbey are pedestrian in midfield and neither have the speed to chase back when they lose the ball which they both often do! Lapsie should be in the Charlton team in front of them no question.
